The Ledbury Poetry Festival takes place over ten days each July (29th June – 8th July in 2018). They are the biggest and best poetry festival in the UK, featuring poets from all over the world. If you think you know what poetry is, come along and they'll surprise you.
There are live readings, performances, workshops, open mics, music, exhibitions, films, family events, street events, a slam and much more. 2018 is their twenty second year – join them for a celebration of poetry in the rural heartland of England.
The Festival also runs a Community Programme, a Schools Programme, and a New and Emerging Writers’ Programme all year round – see their films on their website for a flavour of what they do.
