Of Earth and Sky is a large scale open air poetry exhibition being held in Gloucester between August 24th 2020 and November 1st 2020.

Across the city you can find excerpts from 31 poems written by Gloucestershire residents painted on grass, concrete and buildings. They can be found in parks and public places and form a sculpture trail, giving you plenty of places to explore as you hunt for all the poems!

Different walking and cycling route options are available on their website here. You can also plan your own route, or discover poems on your travels around Gloucester.

All locations can be reached on foot or on wheels. A number of the locations are in and around the city centre and easily accessible, while others are around the outskirts of the city centre and can be reached via cycle/foot paths and pavements. Bollards need to be negotiated at entrances and exits to some parks and paths, so it is advisable to plan your route if you need to check it is suitable for you.
