Poetry and Words Tent


 

Friends, roamers, festivalgoers! Lend your ears and wend your way wordwards to the Poetry&Words Tent, a Glastonbury tradition heard first in a yurt in 1992, nurtured fifteen years in the Green Futures Field, where it now blossoms into a non-stop performance platform for all manner of mouthy poets, from the emerging & exciting to the esteemed & established.

 

Poets are travelling here from Ireland, Scotland and all countries in between for an oral extravaganza introduced this year by legendary Stroud printer-poet Dennis Gould, who long ago inspired & accompanied Poetry&Words' behind-the-scenes guru PVT West, wandering Worthy Farm's fields together as Riff Raff Poets, creating audiences here and there and everywhere.
