The Ted Hughes Project


The Ted Hughes Poetry Festival

The fourth Ted Hughes Poetry Festival takes place over the weekend of 7 – 9 September 2018. We’ve devised an exciting and diverse programme of events in and around Mexborough, including readings and performances from acclaimed poets Moor Mother, Mike Garry and Kate Fox. Further details of the 2018 Festival will appear here soon.
