Get a Word in Online

On the second Thursday of each month there will be an evening of Poetry, Storytelling, Song and interviews to anyone interested in getting a taste of what the festival is going to be like.

All the concerts will be live happenings, not recordings, with all the energy, excitement and potential chaos that being there in the moment brings. As we find our way in this new world of lock-down and become familiar with these new technologies, we are finding that there is definitely something different and of value in sticking to a live format. There is a certain immediacy that just isn’t there when it is recorded. You can’t pause the concert and watch it later. You have to make the effort, turn up, be there.

All our concerts are presented using Zoom. To join us on the day all you need to do is click on the link which will be sent to you after you've bought a ticket.
