Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival
May 25, 2018 - May 27, 2018
A friendly, relaxed gathering on the edge of beautiful Bodmin Moor, the festival features something for everyone and is an eclectic mix of poetry-based events featuring readings, workshops, talks, walks, music, dance and visual art.
Our line-up of poets runs from the newest voices on the block to some of the UK’s most established and respected figures. We continue to explore poetry’s relationship with dance, and we once again celebrate the centenary of a 20th century great, this time W.S Graham, a Scottish poet who lived most of his adult life in Cornwall.
Our readings and workshops range from the traditional to the experimental, from the local primary school to the Celtic fringes. We draw out the art of book illustration, the relationship between a great poet and his artist friends, and the poet as the artist.
We move from the dialect of the Black Country to Spain, from Cardiff via Beat & Black Mountain to poetry on film, from the Moomins to memes as we savour the many marvellous voices poetry can inhabit.
