A new ‘Larkin Toad’ has been unveiled in Hull to mark the 30th anniversary of poet Philip Larkin’s death.

Part of the Toads Revisited programme, the giant Library Toad installation will be on show to the public in the Exhibition Hall of the Brynmor Jones Library until August 30.

It has been created by Rebecca Dennison, a member of staff at the university.

The unveiling was staged to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Larkin With Toads project that saw 40 giant toads put on show on the streets of Hull and East Yorkshire.

Larkin died in Hull in 1985 at the age of 63, having produced much of his published work while working as university librarian at the Brynmor Jones Library.

University of Hull Librarian, Dr Richard Heseltine, says the institution is extremely proud of its connection to the poet and novelist and delighted to add a new toad to the group.
