How poet Simon Armitage is helping celebrate 40 years of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park

It’s a grey December day just before Christmas, but the inclement weather somehow only adds to the allure and atmosphere of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I’m there to meet poet, playwright and novelist Simon Armitage who has just taken up a 12-month residency for the park’s 40th anniversary. Armitage will be helping the YSP celebrate its unique appeal throughout 2017, visiting in different seasons and producing new work in response to the park as well as curating a programme of readings and events, and launching a new publication in the autumn.
