Cheltenham Poetry Festival
The 13th Cheltenham Poetry Festival, 20 - 29 April 2023, will provide an exciting programme of live literature events throughout Cheltenham.
Launched by poet Anna Saunders in 2011, the Festival kicked off with a sell-out performance by iconic punk poet John Cooper Clarke at Cheltenham Town Hall. It has since gone from strength to strength with audiences growing rapidly.
In the last 12 years the Festival has offered events featuring our greatest living poets, spoken word artists, musicians, actors, dancers, writers and film makers.
The Festival also offers an extensive outreach programme for those who suffer economic, physical and other barriers to cultural inclusion.
