Cheltenham Poetry Festival 2015 programme highlights

20 April – 3 May
2015


We are only weeks away from Cheltenham Poetry Festival 2015. This year we are celebrating our fifth birthday with a jam-packed programme, which includes comedy, hip hop, bands, drama, children's workshops, as well as readings from internationally acclaimed poets.

This year’s theme is the environment and the natural world.  


‘Green’ highlights include a reading, sponsored by The Campaign to Protect Rural England (Gloucestershire), by one of our greatest living poets Sean O'Brien. He’s joined by environmental poet Michael McKimm. We are also launching Dear World a new 70-page anthology from the Cheltenham Poetry Festival’s publishing arm  (Frosted Fire Press) featuring poems on the environment and the natural world by some of the poets reading at the Festival and with a Foreword by Sir Andrew Motion (President CPRE).  In this context, we are particularly delighted to welcome Christopher Somerville (Walking Correspondent for The Daily Telegraph for 17 years), Adam Horovitz - both with local connections - David Morley and Ann Segrave, whose work teems with organic life and lyrical imagery of the natural world.  Other highlights include: the Festival’s (and Carol Ann Duffy’s) favourite poetry band Little Machine; a galaxy of acclaimed poets - Claire Trévien, Tim Liardet, Martyn Crucefix, Stephen James, Charles Bennett, Jo Bell, Wendy Klein and many others - plus showcases from prestigious publishing houses and a host of distinguished local writers; bands; comedy; freestyle from Martin Daws; hip hop from Petra Vita; the Slam; workshops from Rosie Jackson and Adam Wyeth; children’s poetry shows - and much more!
