Welcome! We hope you enjoyed BMPF Seven this summer. Our line-up of poets included some of the newest voices on the block to some of the UK’s most established and respected figures. We continued to explore poetry’s relationship with dance, and we celebrated the centenary of the 20th century great, W.S. Graham, a Scottish poet who lived most of his adult life in Cornwall.

For our next festival, BMPF Eight, we’ll be marking the 30 year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The festival and events will be loosely themed around walls and barriers. And breaking them down! We’ll be welcoming back some of our previous partners, and inviting in new ones.

As with previous years, we’ll be celebrating poetry across generations, with an exciting line-up of emerging poets and artists, as well as well-known greats. We can’t wait to share them with you!

Ann Gray and David Woolley

“Had a ridiculously lovely time [at BMPF] courtesy of [Guillemot Press] - beautifully curated and *stunning* readings from Capildeo and Pester among many others. An unusually wonderful audience - exceptionally well-run and thoughtful…sort of ego-less…one of the very best festival experiences I’ve had in the last ten years.” - Luke Kennard

“A winning line-up.” - John Townsend

“Came from Penryn just for the dance and loved it!” - Helen Morton

“I had a wonderful time [at BMPF] this weekend. Lovely people, amazing poems and performances from really talented artists.” - Adriana Ciontea

“I have been to every festival so far and they never fail to fill me with excitement and wonder.” Trish Blake
