Poetry in the Barn

A summer celebration of poetry with special guest Gillian Clarke curated by Anna Dreda. Tickets bookable in advance.

Join us for a feast of poetry from 10.30-5pm on Sunday 7th July  at Aardvark Books in Brampton Bryan, with poets Jonathan Edwards, (Costa Poetry Winner 2014), Paul Henry, Pauline Prior-Pitt, and very special guest Gillian Clarke, former National Poet of Wales, and founder of Ty Newydd. There will also be an abundance of poetic activities, including interviews, conversation with Jenny Swann and Deborah Alma (the Emergency Poet), and appearances by Jean Atkin, Thirza Clout, poetry prescriptions from the Poetry Pharmacy, and more. The day is curated by Anna Dreda, of Wenlock Books, founder of Wenlock Poetry Festival, with her trademark joy in bringing poetry to people who didn't know they loved it!

Doors open at 10am; tea and coffee are provided, and light soup lunch and cake are available to buy at Aardvark Café during the day.

Tickets on sale at Aardvark Books, 01547 530744 or Wenlock Books, £30; or via Eventbrite £31.51 (includes Eventbrite fees).
