Since its birth in 2017, Nottingham Poetry Festival has been a much celebrated city-wide event bringing together the best poets from the local area and beyond. As keen supporters of the independent creative scene here in Nottingham, we’ve been involved with the team at NPF since its inception, providing venues and flying the flag for the festival wherever possible.
Of course, not being able to celebrate the festival in person in recent years has been a huge disappointment… until now!
That’s right, Nottingham Poetry Festival is back this year with an amazing showcase of talent. There’s a a huge range of exciting events from poetry slams to storytelling and a “global party”, bringing together poets from all around the world in a hybrid poetry party and open mic.
We’re proud to be hosting a number of these events at some of our venues and look forward to hearing what talent the festival has to offer this year.
