We are 'Poetry In Aldeburgh', a not-for-profit organisation that aims to build on and continue the heritage of poetry and over 30 years of  poetry festivals on the Suffolk Coast.


Our first festival was in November 2016 and we hold them annually. We also work with local and national organisations in the arts & literary fields to support poetry in our area.

We continue to be very heartened by the level of personal support and encouragement for our collaborative and volunteer led venture.
