Much Wenlock Poetry Festival

Last weekend we went to Much Wenlock Poetry festival! Lauren should probably be writing this post as she is much better at appreciating poems and poets. But she's run off to London to eat cake and drink tea so you're stuck with me.

Ultimately it was really enjoyable, we went to three events and saw Pascale Petit, Fiona Sampson and Carol Ann Duffy who also brought along Imtiaz Dharker and Sean Borodale.

I was fascinated at how well they delivered each poem they read out, each sentence dripped with meaning, these were not sentences cobbled together lightly. So have a listen or take a look at there their books. Or maybe go to the festival next year.
