A festival that puts poetry and words centre stage
Award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams (Barber Shop Chronicles, The Half-God of Rainfall) showcases the power of words as he curates and hosts a series of creative and thought-provoking events.
This festival brings poetry centre stage and unites the best of Ellams' work with everything from spoken word to hip-hop DJ sets. The events all explore the theme of ‘Belonging’ and venues include the Theatre and our iconic Conservatory. With a mix of old favourites and world premieres, there’s a feast of inspiration waiting just for you.
