The inaugural Tunbridge Wells Poetry Festival takes place 15-16th June 2018. I am delighted to be part of it through my association with Sarah Salway, an inspirational local writer and teacher, who has organised a ‘poetry trail’ from Chapel Place down along the Pantiles. Sarah persuaded shops along the route to display work by local poets for the duration of the festival. I was privileged to be commissioned to write for Arte Bianca, the fabulous Italian delicatessen, whose premises occupy the corner of Chapel Place.
If you’ve never visited this historic part of Tunbridge Wells perhaps this will inspire you to do so. You will be well rewarded for your efforts! Hope to see you there.
