In response to the COVID-19 crisis, and with a heavy heart we have decided to postpone the Nottingham Poetry Festival until later in the year.

We are aiming to reschedule as many events as possible and would like to thank everyone involved – performers, organisers, venues, sponsors and audiences for all your support and input so far.

Sending well wishes and light your way, and we’ll be in touch with any updates about virtual poetry opportunities as things become clearer. In the meantime, to stay up to date, be sure to follow us on TwitterInstagram and Facebook.

We welcome event submissions so if you would like to get in touch, would like more information and for all press enquiries, please email us on
