Larkin on the Move: The Bike Library

Larkin was an ardent cyclist – as well as a poet. So – linked to a programme of events on Larkin’s birthday weekend (8th-9th August) focused on ‘Toads revisited’ and sponsored by the Larkin Society – Artlink in Hull are working in partnership with Park Bench Theatre and East Coast Bicycles to create a bike library. Park Bench Theatre Company will take to the streets of Hull and the East Riding on a beautiful vintage bike with a library trailer full of poetry books! You are invited to experience interactive performances and workshops based around the poetry of Philip Larkin and other writers. These family-friendly events are ideal for all ages!
The locations have been carefully chosen to reflect places with special connections to Philip Larkin and are all included in The Larkin Trail
