South Yorkshire Poetry Festival

Welcome to the 2017 South Yorkshire Poetry Festival!

As Ian McMillan announced at the 2015 festival, there is a poetry renaissance happening in South Yorkshire, and we're inviting you to come along and be a part of it. 

We’re hosting a week of poetry events in Sheffield and around South Yorkshire between Monday 22 May and Sunday 28 May, with a varied programme of readings, performances, open mics and poetry walks. We're building on the work of the 2015 festival in bringing poetry to a variety of venues across South Yorkshire, and bringing you poets that are well-known alongside those that are up-and-coming. We've really enjoyed working with so many venues and organisations across South Yorkshire to put together this varied and exciting programme.

We hope you enjoy the festival, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a South Yorkshire local. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this year’s programme and, in particular, Arts Council England for their generous support.

Sorry, there are no upcoming events
