In this section you can access a rich store of audio material related to The Larkin Trail. We have created two podcasts - one is a guide to the city centre section of the Larkin Trail, the other provides an exclusive behind the scenes peek at Larkin’s house, from the perspective of its current owner. Larkin reading his own poems, thanks to publishers Faber, and hear the musical treatments of his works by local bands, as part of the All Night North project for Larkin25. Hear contemporary Jazz from Hull musician Dave Ellis and friends, and listen to Larkin’s favourite records.
