A Tribute To Sir Geoffrey Hill (1932-2016)

  • Date:
  • Location: The Great Hall, University of Leeds

The Clothworkers Consort is honoured to participate in A Tribute to Sir Geoffrey Hill (1932-2016).


Geoffrey Hill was knighted in 2012 for his services to poetry. A graduate of Keble College Oxford, his academic career began at Leeds in 1954 with his appointment to a lectureship. He spent the next twenty six years at our University and was appointed to a Chair in English Literature in 1976. During this time, Geoffrey published four collections of poetry – For the Unfallen, King Log, Mercian Hymns, and Tenebrae – works which secured his reputation as one of the finest poets writing in the English language. The University of Leeds is proud of its long-standing association with Geoffrey – which includes the custodianship of his extensive archive – and would like to extend a warm invitation to family, friends, colleagues, and admirers to join in this tribute. Everyone is welcome.
