Celebrating poetry

The team behind Wenlock Poetry Festival have announced that a special event is to take place on Sunday 6 May. The celebratory get-together and performance will mark the successes of past festivals and give an update of plans going forward, as well as acknowledging Much Wenlock’s role as ‘the perfect place for poetry’ according to Festival founder Anna Dreda.

The programme will feature the popular Poetry Busk (at Priory Hall from 2-5pm, £2 on the door) and an evening performance with poets Paul Henry, Jo Bell and Philip Gross (at The Edge Arts Centre, 7pm).

Tickets for the evening event are £12/10 and are available at wenlockpoetryfestival.org or Wenlock Books.
