SPECIAL EVENT: Join the Live Canon ensemble for a unique, marathon poetry performance.

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, on his 452nd birthday, Live Canon commissioned 154 contemporary poets to each pen a poem in response to one of Shakespeare's 154 sonnets.

In this remarkable six hour marathon, the Live Canon ensemble will launch the publication of the poems with a performance of all 154 sonnets and all 154 responses, in the beautiful surroundings of the V&A's National Art Library.

Drop in or stay all day for a Shakespeare birthday blowout.

This event is part of the V&A Performance Festival 2016.
