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.
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.
