In May 2019 Prime and BBC Wiltshire asked the people of Swindon to help us make a Poem that highlights the town’s achievements and glories, uncovers its curiosities and culture, and celebrates its people and places.
People were asked to provide lines and inspiration for the poem – which was then curated by performance poet Sara-Jane Arbury.
As inspiration, BBC Wiltshire Broadcast daily Poems throughout May 2019, performed by Amaka Okafor and Christopher Adams and recorded with Prime Theatre.
A Poem for Swindon was performed, celebrated, and broadcast on BBC Wiltshire on May 24.
