About this Event

As Bristol’s third City Poet, Caleb Parkin has written and performed poems for a wide range of organisations and occasions including: the 2022 Jubilee, two State of the City Addresses, Bristol Remembers (the first anniversary of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown), the Museum of the Moon at Bristol Cathedral and Bristol Zoo Gardens. He has run workshops at Christ the King Primary School in Knowle West and with Bristol Refugee Rights.

Caleb will perform and talk about some of his favourite commissions with Naomi Miller, Acting Director of Bristol Ideas Director, before officially handing over to Kat Lyons. With a special introduction from Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol.


Tickets are free but we have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to two per transaction to limit the number of ‘no shows’ and ensure as many people as possible can attend. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

Online ticket booking is free and via Eventbrite. Please note that Eventbrite is a third-party service that is not owned or managed by Bristol Ideas. Please review Eventbrite’s terms and conditions and Privacy Policy as Bristol Ideas do not accept any responsibility or liability for the policies. You can read Bristol Ideas’ Privacy policy here.
