Poetry and Music In The Square




Sarah Lincoln - Poetry and Music in the Square


This is one of my favourite ways to start the festival day.

Every day from 12.30pm to 2.00pm a diverse collection of poets, writers, musicians and other performers gather in Norway Square or in The Salthouse Gallery if its raining.

The event is led by Bob Devereux - but this year only during week 2.
Bob is away during the first week of the festival and so Rod Bullimore and Anna Chen will be stepping in to conduct proceedings.

Anybody is welcome to perform, if you make yourself know to Bob / Rod / Anna when you arrive they will add you to the list for the day if they can.

I particularly enjoy this as I never know what to expect - there is a great variety of performers and there are always surprises.

Its also a free event - although donations are requested.

Myself and Anna will be filming some of the performances and posting them here.

See you there.
