Three packed days of poetry performances, workshops, talks and film screenings in the beautiful cliff-top setting of Sewerby Hall, two miles north of Bridlington.
Now in its fourth year, Bridlington Poetry Festival 2013 welcomes poets from the East Riding of Yorkshire, from across the UK and around the world. This year’s 30 performers include Jackie Kay, Jo Shapcott, Don Paterson and Festival Patron Ian McMillan.
This year sees the launch of the Bridlington Poetry Festival Summer School, an intensive creative writing programme for a maximum of 12 participants alongside the Festival programme, led by renowned poets and tutors Daljit Nagra and Pascale Petit. With accommodation in a sea-front hotel, participants will enjoy morning classes together, afternoon one-to-one sessions with the tutors, a free pass to all afternoon and evening Festival event and an exclusive performance by their tutors.
The Festival will also feature performances by primary and secondary students who have been working with poet Andrew McMillan in schools around Bridlington, some brilliant interactive performances for young people including Spill the Beans, a Poetry Slam Cabaret, a Poetry Geo-Cache for families in association with The Poetry Society and more than a few nice surprises...
