Southwell Poetry Festival, July 14-17

Southwell Library Poetry Festival 14th - 17th July 2016

Southwell Library Poetry festival, one of the key events in Nottinghamshire’s cultural calendar, returns for its ninth consecutive year with another wide range of events.
Nationally-acclaimed poets such as Lemn Sissay brings his performance on Friday, Forward Prize-winning poet Daljit Nagra will appear on Saturday night, and Sunday’s Afternoon Tea is hosted by the Kate Fox.
Saturday kicks off with Roald Dahl-themed fun for children, while workshops and talks run throughout the weekend, including the chance to discover poetry penned by local soldiers from Nottinghamshire Archive’s own collections, heard in public for the very first time.
For writers, there’s a drop-in poetry surgery with Writing School East Midlands, plus a performance workshop with the inspirational Kevin Fegan. An Afternoon with the Small Press is set to provide a fascinating insight into the work of our local small presses for writers and readers alike.
A community performance by Southwell Theatre Club will bring the festival to a close.
Here’s a list of events.
