Poetry Slam

Ledbury Poetry Festival return for their third Poetry Slam at The Courtyard!

Compered by Elvis McGonnagal and Sara-Jane Arbury, the evening promises to be a knockout night of potent poetry and spirited performances. Each poet who takes to the stage will be marked on three categories – the quality of their writing, the quality of their performance and the warmth of the audience response.

Philippa Slinger, Festival Manager of Ledbury Poetry Festival says:

Ledbury Poetry Festival is really excited to present this Poetry Slam in association with The Courtyard. This slam-dunk event is always a Festival favourite and one of our best-kept secrets! Come and see do-or-die versifiers duel it out for the title of Slam champion and a chance to perform at the 2018 Festival. An unmissable evening!

Poetry Slam at The Courtyard will be in The Courtyard’s Studio Theatre on Saturday 21 April at 8pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or click here to buy now.
