From trees to bridges, street corners to boats on the river, listen out for a cacophony of verse! There will be events in The Guild Chapel, The Shakespeare Institute, throughout the five Shakespeare Houses and other venues. Plus guided sonnet and poetry trails, an 'open mic' session at Hall's Croft for budding performers and a special recital of T S Eliot's The Wasteland. At 4.00pm there will be a large public gathering to join in a recital of The Owl and the Pussycat outside Shakespeare's Birthplace.
The Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival is looking for volunteers to help out on Poetry Sunday 15 July from 10am to 5pm. Stratford comes to life with the sound of poetry!
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust are seeking as many who would like to take part to read poems through the day at the town's Poetry Patches, as well as people to help manage the Poetry Patches and raise awareness about the day as a whole.
If you are interested, please send an e-mail to Coreen Turner
Free event - 10.00am - 4.00pm
