Win tickets to Ledbury Poetry Festival and a 2-night stay!

The biggest poetry festival in the UK

Inspiring, inclusive and international in its programme, everyone is welcome at Ledbury Poetry Festival (30th June – 9th July). The line-up includes live readings and conversations, workshops, music, exhibitions and films, and there is lots on for the whole family, too. On Sunday evening, LYR – a band comprised of author and Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, singer-songwriter Richard Walters and multi-instrumentalist and producer Patrick James Pearson – take to the stage. Formed in 2018, LYR are a firmly established part of the contemporary music scene; it’s an unmissable Festival finale. View the Festival programme.
