Latest News

This year, we’re having two festivals!

Now in our eighth year, we are ringing the changes a little, with a packed day of fantastic events on our usual May weekend, followed by a full weekend festival in late September.

ONE DAY IN MAY is presented in partnership with the lovely, Cornwall-based publisher Guillemot Press, winner of the 2018 Michael Marks Award for Best Poetry Pamphlet Publisher.

Our theme is 'conversations'. We’ll be presenting a stunning line-up pairing poets new and established. The poets will be reading from their work as well as talking to each other about their practice, influences and experiences. Our day opens with a special poetry workshop and rounds off in style, celebrating the greats of rock n roll in poetry and music.

OUR SEPTEMBER FESTIVAL will be a wonderful full weekend, around the loose theme of ‘Walls/Barriers’, to mark 30 years since the fall of the Berlin wall. As with our previous festivals, we’ll be celebrating poetry across generations, with an exciting line-up of emerging poets and artists, as well as some well-known greats.

We can’t wait to share all of these brilliant poets with you. We’ll see you there!

Ann Gray and David Woolley
