Poetry Reading: Anatomising Miracles

  • Buckingham Palace (map)

This special event presents readings from poets Jo Shapcott and Maurice Riordan, alongside the exhibition Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomist. Both these poets work from a deep fascination with science and a shared sense of wonderment at the workings of the world and, through a collaboration with the Poetry Society, the evening includes the premiere of two new poems which respond directly to da Vinci’s studies of the human body.

Tickets £12.50 (includes an exclusive private view of the exhibition)

In collaboration with Wellcome Collection.
