We are delighted to announce that the fourth Ted Hughes Poetry Festival will take place over the weekend of 7 – 9 September 2018. We’ve devised an exciting and diverse programme of events at venues in and around Mexborough, including readings and performances from acclaimed poets Moor Mother, Mike Garry and Kate Fox.
The festival weekend follows several one-off events earlier in 2018, including a tribute to John Fisher (Ted Hughes’s English teacher), a poetry walk through Carlton Marsh with Steve Ely (in search of the elusive willow tit), and Ian McMillan’s Mexborough stroll (in search of Ted Hughes and Elvis Presley).
The full programme, and booking details, will be available on this site later in July. Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating and unforgettable festival. We look forward to seeing you.
