Stay well and greetings from the beach in Aldeburgh

2020 Festival

News

Sadly in these uncertain times it is not possible to plan safely for a regular Festival on the ground in November 2020 but we will have some interesting events online - more soon about that.

 

The good news is that we are aiming for a full festival next year. 

Thank you all who sent in some great proposals and event ideas. We are considering them for 2021 and will be in touch in the next few weeks.

 

The volunteer led Festivals will continue. 

The Festival Team 

 

About

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.
