Poems Aloud!

Listen as judges choose the best recitation or performance of a published poem by University of St Andrews students.

The Poetry Out Loud project in the USA has made an impact on YouTube and demonstrated the power of poetry well delivered. The University Library's own version, Poems Aloud, has become something of a tradition at StAnza and now returns for a sixth year in 2019.

Come, listen and be impressed as our students compete in the final of Poems Aloud for a cash prize for the best recitation or performance of a poem by a poet appearing at StAnza 2019 in St Andrews.

The event is being held in the Byre Theatre for the first time this year and is open to the public.
