Festival of Hope 1 / 3 June 2020

Where Light Falls: poetry, light, film, architecture

Historic England and The Poetry Society worked with poet Jane Commane and local participants to create a crowd-sourced poem based on the war-time stories of Coventry Cathedral which was beamed onto the walls of the buildings alongside animations by projection art studio Double Take Productions.


The Poetry Society

The Poetry Society is the UK’s leading organisation for poetry. With innovative education and commissioning programmes, and a packed calendar of performances, competitions, and digital projects, The Poetry Society champions poetry for all ages. The Poetry Society was founded in 1909 to promote a “more general recognition and appreciation of poetry”. Since then, it has grown into a dynamic arts organisation, representing British poetry both nationally and internationally. It has a thriving worldwide membership and publishes Britain’s leading poetry magazine, The Poetry Review. The Poetry Society is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and a registered charity.
