Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival 2021


The Kent & Sussex Poetry Society is one of the sponsors of the Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival 2021, in which several of our members are taking part and involved in organising events.

In keeping with its motto – Poetry For All, Big or Small – the Festival is putting on a wide range of online and in-person events between 15th and 27th August, including:

– A number of writer’s workshops, online and in person, for practised poets and anyone who’d like to give poetry a go

– A fun day at the Forum, with a variety of events for adults and children

– ‘Pam Slam’, an evening of comedy and humorous verse

– A performance of original poems and music celebrating life on Planet Earth

– Readings by published local poets, along with Open Mic opportunities

– Poetry discussion panels and…

– … their headline act, prize-winning performance poet Luke Wright
