NaCOT - On The Border
Our intention is to present the finest poets in engaging, powerful and stimulating combinations.
The emphasis is on accessible poetry, inspiring poets and compelling readings - all of which add up to a great night out.
If you don't know the world of contemporary poetry, this series promises a rich and entertaining introduction.
If poetry is an old love, there could be no better way to get back in touch.
Join us. Make a date with the extraordinary.

"Poetry is not for
NaCOT (The National Centre for the Oral Tradition) is a newly formed registered charity (charity number 1144493) formed to celebrate and further the oral tradition. In the UK we have a National Theatre, National Museum, National Libraries, National Film School and numerous national stadia but we have nothing for the spoken-word-tradition that has carried our culture for 40,000 years
On the Border gratefully acknowledges the support of Literature Wales, the Welsh literature promotion agency and society for authors.
