One Day in the City: Friday 27 May

One Day in the City Logo

One Day in the City is UCL English Department’s bi-annual celebration of London and Literature. Come and listen to, question, and rub shoulders with some of the greatest living poets, novelists, and writers in London, in a high-octane conclusion to the UCL Festival of Culture.

Programme of events

For those brave enough, there will also be an interactive swing installation by Anna Brownsted; readings of, riffs on and performances of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land; the chance to be guided through original prints and drawings from UCL Art Museum’s Shakespeare-related collections; as well as dramatic interventions and book signings.

We have an incredible line up, including:

UCL English Department is extremely proud to be continuing our partnership with First Story at One Day in the City this year, with the National Writing Competition Awards Ceremony. It is also wonderful to be extending our long history with the London Review of Books and to join forces, for the first time, with the impressive House of St Barnabas for our final event of the Festival.
