Poetry for the People

Poetry for the People

A day of poetry and spoken word that is urgent, funny, entertaining and especially for you, the people!

From Genevieve Walsh and the first of our ‘Breakfast Epiphanies’ to ‘Gudrun’s Sisters’ exploration into the stories and songs of the Blues. From John Hegley and his tale of the historic ‘Kinsley Evictions’ to the legendary Linton Kwesi Johnson headlining a glittering night of arguably the finest spoken word artists in the country. Plus much, much more. A real day of celebration of the word that may change how you feel about poetry, forever!
