Lovers of poetry and literature may be interested to attend the Poetry Takeaway, a unique writing event taking place at the Southbank Centre from May 25th to June 2nd 2013.

It features a rotating cast of top UK poets and local writers, each of whom is tasked with composing, performing and delivering handwritten poems to attendees, focusing on any subject suggested to them.

Overseen by acclaimed writer Tim Clare, the Poetry Takeaway challenges the writers to create made-to-order poetry in ten minutes or less, which are then presented in boxes to the visitor in question.

This event takes place between 12:00 and 17:00 BST on Saturdays and Sundays between the selected dates.

Book a stay at The 41 Hotel and take advantage of packages such as the Romantically deal, which is perfect for couples.

Luxury London hotel guests will receive daily English breakfasts, a red rose on arrival and a choice of optional extras, including Champagne, flowers, chocolates, candles and caviar.
