Poetry Idol has been so popular in recent years, we’ve moved it to a bigger venue. Still, be prepared to queue out the door or camp overnight to get a seat. A night of feverish lyricism, hallucinatory language and astounding nouns and adjectives, and that’s just from the judges: American Poetry Slam Empress Sonya Renee, our own Glenn Colquhoun, and the irrepressible Iggy McGovern from Ireland. MC: the inimitable Penny Ashton. Prospective Idols: please go to the festival website for information about prizes on offer, and how to get an audition.
Door tickets are subject to availability. We cannot guarantee there will be tickets available on the door and strongly recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
