National Poetry Day celebrates poetry across the United Kingdom and West Yorkshire Archive Service is celebrating some of the poetry held within its collections through its Poetry Display.
Poetry gives us an insight into the observations of events, national, local and personal that can affect an individual and inspire them to write.
The display gives an overview of the types of collections we hold that contain poetry and reflects some of the themes and topics that local people have written about.
The display will be on show in each of our district offices from Wednesday 6th October – Friday 22nd October.
WYAS collects a diverse range of records created by a variety of individuals, groups and businesses, if you would like to discuss the possibility of depositing records or would like to give feedback on the types of records you would like to see, please contact the Collections Team
