Just a few more weeks to go now and Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival will be underway. You’ll see leaflets, posters and other promotional material appearing around town and in local media soon, many offering variations on the headliner showcase theme above, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that is all we have to offer.
We’ve a wide range of workshops, numerous open mic and reading opportunities and a whole host of word-based performances that straddle the spaces between. And of course we have our Forum takeover to bring the festival to its grand finale on June 26th. “The best day out I had all year,” said one of our followers on Facebook, and if that isn’t enough to convince you we don’t know what is!
There are numerous ways of finding the information you need on this website – the handy links below, for example – and from there you’ll find connections for the most important things of all: TICKETS! Don’t delay, buy them today. Gift them to friends and family. Share the joy.
TODAY’S FINAL THOUGHT: if you know of or can provide a space that will help spread the word contact us and we’ll get some leaflets and posters to you. Better yet, follow us on social media and share our posts to your poetry-loving friends. A ‘like’ is great, but a retweet or share on Facebook or Instagram really hits the spot.
