Deep London: The King's Cross Mysteries

We are pleased to announce our next lunchtime event here at the Visitor Centre with acclaimed poet Aidan Andrew Dun.

A lunchtime poetic lecture on: Deep London: The King's Cross Mysteries

This event will be held at the King’s Cross Visitor Centre, 11 Stable Street, London N1C 4AB on Friday, 5th December at 1pm.

The event is free to attend, but as places are limited, please contact the Visitor Centre on 0203 479 1795 or visitor.centre@kingscross.co.uk to register your place.

The hippest and most famous poet in the world, Arthur Rimbaud, lived in King's Cross Central in his ‘year of miracles’ 1873. Aidan AD’s talk ‘Deep London: The Kings Cross Mysteries’ will use Rimbaud’s extraordinary life as a jumping-off point to examine the magical landscape of King's Cross. Did Rimbaud - a rock-poet a hundred years before rap, Dylan, Hendrix, Eminem - leave clues in his work referencing an area which now seems destined to become the new art-zone of London? You will not look at King's Cross in the same light when you’ve heard Aidan AD’s take on its secret history.

‘Love’s to be reinvented’ - Arthur Rimbaud

‘Kings Cross, dense with angels and histories, there are cites beneath your pavements, cities behind your skies. Let me see!’ - Aidan Andrew Dun

Aidan Andrew Dun was propelled to fame when in 1995 his publisher hired the Royal Albert Hall to launch his epic poem, Vale Royal, a work which had taken twenty-three years to write. Four thousand people heard him recite at the biggest poetry event in Britain in the last thirty years. Since then Aidan AD has gone to produce four more epic poems including Unholyland (Hesperus, 2013) and two collections of shorter poems as well as a monograph on the essential French poet, Arthur Rimbaud
