2022 Festival
(Friday 4th to Sunday 6th November)

Mark the dates in your diary. Check out our podcasts from the 2021 Festival above for the flavour of last year.

Our planning for a Festival in November 2022 is underway and we are looking forward to returning with some workshops and reading events to Aldeburgh, our town by the sea.


We will also continue to have a live online offering for events and many workshops on days around the core weekend as we recognise that, for many, travel may still not be easy or affordable. We are keen to retain the sense of community built up at our recent online festivals.

We are looking for proposals to perform, read and / or run a workshop, either individually or as a group. Please use the link to our form on the panel to the left or read more about the Festival on the Expression of Interest page.

The Festival Team 



We are 'Poetry In Aldeburgh', a not-for-profit organisation that aims to build on and continue the heritage of poetry and over 40 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.
