Wenlock Poetry Festival

by Jeff Phelps on April 16th, 2015

Wenlock Poetry Festival runs from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th April this year in the lovely surroundings of Much Wenlock in Shropshire.  There’s always an amazing atmosphere with stuff going on at The Edge arts centre, Wenlock Pottery, the parish church, the Priory Hall and the Methodist Chapel as well as in the pubs and cafes and outdoors.

I’ll be introducing a whole day’s poetry at Wenlock Pottery on Saturday 25th, from 11am to 4pm, plus getting in a few of my own poems.

On Sunday I’ll be part of The Busk at the Methodist Chapel.  Introduced by Liz Lefroy it runs on both days, but I’ll be reading some time between three and four.  It’s a great chance to hear a huge variety of poets – some of whom are appearing at the festival in their own right – in an informal atmosphere.  You can buy a ticket, get a stamp and come and go all day!

But don’t take my word for it.  Download a programme to see who’s on (there are some cracking guests) and what’s happening or link to the website that’s been building since before Christmas.  Hope to see you there!
