Kendal Poetry Festival
June 23, 8:00 AM – June 26, 5:00 PM EDT
We are thrilled to be running our first hybrid Kendal Poetry Festival in 2022 – with all events taking place in the heart of Kendal and on your screen! In its fifth year, the festival will welcome some of the most exciting poets and artists we could find throughout the UK – and beyond. We’ll be hosting the extraordinary ‘Painting the Poets’ exhibition by Clae Eastgate, and introducing our first Children’s Poetry Strand with a full day of events for younger audiences. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in our open mics, workshops and daily writing hours.
If you’ve been to previous festivals, we hope we can tempt you back with this year’s programme. If this is your first time, we look forward to meeting you – whether virtually or in-person!
