Brent Poet Laureate Launch – meet featured poet #3: John Agard

What can I say about our third featured poet for the Brent Poet Laureate launch this Friday?! Basically he’s a total legend and it’s a huge honour to have him involved. John Agard is one of those names that my non-poetry friends know and respect and get excited about, a lot of them probably studied him at school and I often find those that did remember his poems fondly…

This year John is the recipient of the Queen’s Award Medal for Poetry, and in the past he has been Writer in Residence at the South Bank Centre and Poet in Residence at the BBC. Nuff said.

Step one: watch him do his thing below…
Step two: reserve your FREE ticket to see him on Friday evening!
