Welcome to Gloucester Poetry Festival 2021! It’s been a time of upheaval and change all over with the dreaded P word continuing to distort the way we live and with politics in the UK has had a drastic effect on how everyone here has interacted and engaged with each other. As such, it was felt that there was a need for introspection and as result we have themed this years festival on Reflection to stand still amongst all the colourful noise.
This year we give thanks and are grateful to include at our on-line festival:
The Pandemic Poetry Anthology
Blue Diode Publishing
The Hedgehog Press
Green Bottle Press
Poets for the Planet
Black Rabbit Press
Plus events with individual poets too. To view an overview of the events and book you free tickets to any of them click here:-

We are excited to bring poetry to you this year in your homes and it just leaves me to thank Marcelle Newbold, Jason Conway and Charlie Markwick for their assistance to make this festival happen, because together we are stronger and can do more in the name of art.
So, wherever you are join us on-line to experience dynamic poetry and be inspired.
