Ledbury Poetry Festival Online!
Ledbury Poetry Festival will happen online this year, on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 July, with a special The Verb preview, on Friday 3 July, on BBC Radio 3 hosted by Ian McMillan.
The Festival events will all happen on Zoom and are an opportunity for anyone who has enjoyed Ledbury Poetry Festival to gather together and hopefully lots of first-timers as well!
Ledbury Poetry Festival Online is not a version of the Festival that would have happened. Instead it is a small and specially curated selection of events that reflect our current times and speak to what is happening in the world now, from Covid-19, to Lockdown, to Black Lives Matter. This Festival Online explores the many ways that poetry matters in these times, as a creative expression, offering an opportunity for reflection, insight, solace and inspiration, sparking conversation and speaking to culture and politics in the present moment.
All the events are FREE. Ledbury Poetry Festival is pleased to offer all events free of charge in the spirit of fellowship with poets, poetry and the poetry community in these challenging times, so that income is no barrier to joining these vital happenings.
However donations are welcome and we would appreciate all the support you can manage.
TICKET PRICES VARY EACH DAY AND FOR DIFFERENT EVENTS
