We are really excited to be reviving the poetry night 'Word Up' for our anniversary year. Birmingham Poetry Festival has a lot to thank Word Up, one of Birmingham's most popular past poetry events for. Not only was it one of the key inspirations for the festival and an event that helped create a surge in interest for poetry events and poetry in the city but it also added some great poets to the festival line-ups.
Full final details to be confirmed but the current confirmed show bill includes:
Word Up Host and special guest performer Ddotti Bluebell
Live music from Ashley Webber
'Poetreality's pentapoetryperformance: Five Themes':
A Festival and National Poetry Day Themes set
from festival founder poetreality
Subject to final confirmation we're hoping to feature the very talented singer-songwriter Katie Jay as the closing act (acoustic set) — we'll update you on this soon.
More to be announced
