This year’s poetry festival is offering a unique opportunity to see and hear poems straight to your phone. The project features a collection of short poems written and performed by emerging local poets especially for Augmented Reality technology.

By downloading the HP Reveal App on your phone via the App Store or the Google Play Store, you will be able to see performances in a variety of locations, in and around festival venues, where a selection of words from the poet’s work have been designed as visual hotspots, and can be found on the festival brochure, posters and on beer mats in Castle Rock pubs. Simply pass your phone over these hot spots to bring to life performances by Georgina Wilding, Amelia Daiz, Alice Peverill, Holly Taylor, James Sikora, Joe Andrews, Mollie Boyd and Patricia Gregory. We hope you enjoy the poetry.
