Sheaf Poetry Festival is a new celebration of poetry in Sheffield. It'll take place for the first time over nine days in May at various venues, many of which are part of Sheffield Hallam's city campus.
It'll all kick off on Friday 17th at a festival launch event at Upper Chapel, continuing that weekend with a packed programme of readings, performances and workshops, including poets such as Andrew McMillan, Imtiaz Dharker, Raymond Antrobus and Denise Riley. The following week will include an assortment of evening events, including a special night with Wordlife at Abbeydale Picture House on the Tuesday. It'll all come to an end on Saturday 25th with one of Longbarrow Press’s famous Sheffield poetry walks and a poetry film night.
Come back soon for more details of the 2019 programme.
