LARKIN AT KING’S CROSS
THE PHILIP LARKIN SOCIETY is seeking funding to install a large slate inscribed roundel at King’s Cross Station on Saturday 7th June to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Philip Larkin’s collection The Whitsun Weddings. The poem which gives the collection its title is based on Larkin’s journey from Hull to King’s Cross Station in which he describes the weddings he observes en route. This roundel will complement and form the final link between the two stations and Larkin’s poem. At the same time it will take Hull’s iconic poet into the centre of the capital promoting not just Larkin but the city and its status as City of Culture 2017.
Full details of the King’s Cross Roundel Unveiling event are listed below.
