Serpentine's Poetry Marathon
A two day poetry + art + music event this Saturday and Sunday, 17–18 October

"The Poetry Marathon is the fourth in the series of Marathons staged in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion each year. The first in the series, the Interview Marathon in 2006, involved interviews with leading figures in contemporary culture over 24 hours, conducted by Obrist and architect Rem Koolhaas. This was followed by the Experiment Marathon, which included 50 experiments by speakers across both arts and science, and the Manifesto Marathon in 2008".
I somehow always manage to miss the ingenious programming of the Park Night Serpentine sessions. Every year for the last four. Much the same as I am always under the duvet with flu on the day of the Boat Race which prevents me from yelling louder than the cox for Oxford.
