What is the collective noun for Poet Laureates (or is that Poets Laureate?)? Whatever it is, you can get five for the price of one at the Wow Festival at the Southbank Centre on Friday 7th March. The five Laureates for Britain and Ireland will be gathering for a one off joint reading, celebrating the fact that all five are women for the first time. The five are: Carol Ann Duffy (England); Liz Lochhead (Scotland); Gillian Clarke (Wales); Paula Meehan (Ireland) and Sinead Morrisey (Northern Ireland).

The Wow (Women of the World) Festival runs until 9th March and among those following the Laureates will be Malala Yousafzai, Alice Walker, Naomi Wolf and a comedy night hosted by Sandi Toksvig.
