We’ve had an absolute blast this year, our 13th festival since we began in 2006. So many amazing performers, poets, our outdoor film screenings; fantastic venues all around the town involved too, some new and some long established.

A huge thank you to everyone involved, performers, our local business sponsors, venues and volunteers, way too numerous to name them all, and of course an especially big thank you to everyone who came along to support us. It was fantastic to have Emma from Bridgnorth Library and Poetry on Loan involved this year. We’ve had the odd poetry event most years but poetry came back to the festival in a big way this year, long may it continue. Our press has been fantastic this year too, many thanks to Liz Roseblade.
