‘An Evening of Poetry’ with the Poet Laureate

On Friday 15th September, Rokeby was honoured to receive Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and John Sampson, member of the Royal Society of Musicians, to perform their acclaimed piece ‘The Princess’ Blankets’. Despite numerous travel setbacks, Carol Ann Duffy finally arrived and gave a wonderful performance that truly inspired and captivated the audience. Our own poets, from Years 6 to 8, also stunned our audience with the maturity of their work and the sincerity of their delivery.

My most sincere thanks to those who came along and supported the event. I hope there is more to come in the future!
