Celebrating the Poets of North Lanarkshire

Summerlee Museum

Thursday 16 March – Sunday 4 June 2023

Mourn with their misfortune, rejoice in their victories and enjoy their sense of humour as they regale us with rhythmic tales of life’s ups and downs in this free exhibition at Summerlee Museum.

During the exhibition you can visit the Story Tree to find inspiration for you own stories and poems hidden in its leaves and a quiet corner to write your own poems and stories.

Free activities inspired by the exhibition will take place at Summerlee Museum on Saturday 22 and Saturday 29 April. Find out more.
