Nottingham Poetry Festival is returning for 2022!

This year’s festival is back for the first time in two years and continues to go from strength to strength delivering a programme of nationally acclaimed stars alongside a diverse programme of activities, performances and events from the vibrant homegrown poetry community. From word walks and performance masterclasses to urban haiku, writing workshops, open mics and poets against racism, there are many ways to experience the festival. 

Author and poet Michael Rosen, TS Eliot prizewinner Joelle Taylor, the godfather of modern British poetry Roger McGough and the current British poet laureate Simon Armitage with his band LYR are among the headliners coming to the city.

In one of the first appearances by Michel Rosen following his 48 days spent in intensive care with Covid in 2020, the former children’s laureate will be sharing his poems ‘for the child in all of us’ at Metronome on 12 May. 

See the full line-up of events ont heir website nottinghampoetryfestival.com.
