Verve Poetry Festival is back and somehow, despite being in the same place and happening over the same length of time, is bigger and better than ever. So come and experience us quash the laws of space and time whilst taking a wrecking ball to all you thought poetry could, would and should be.
* OUR PROGRAMME IS NOW LIVE *
With 50+ poets over 30 events in a packed weekend, Verve is passionate about making poetry approachable for everyone. So, whether your bookshelves are bursting with poetry books, you’ve never read anything since the AQA GCSE anthology or have literally no idea what poetry means, then Verve 2018 will cater for you.
To name(drop) a few poetes, Verve 2018 performers include: Liz Berry, Salena Godden, Imtiaz Dharker, Luke Wright, Nuar Alsadir, Sandeep Parmar, Pascale Petit, Anthony Anaxagorou, Raymond Antrobus and Nick Makoha.
