70 years after it was drawn up, we are exploring the UN Declaration of Human Rights through poetry, spoken word and audience discussion.


Many of the rights drawn up in 1948, just a few years after the end of World War II, are still being hotly debated today and are not close to being achieved. Come to Reading Lasses' great event space and tell us what you think.

The event is being chaired by Robin Lloyd-Jones, whose Autumn Voices event is at Reading Lasses on Monday 24th September.

Our event is part of the global event, Read a Poem to a Child, and we'll be giving you a poem to take away and read to a child you know.
