The Poetry Exchange

Friday 8th June – The Eastwood Room* Various Times

The Poetry Exchange offers a distinctive approach to the exploration and presentation of poetry – a new space somewhere between literary reading, spoken word and performance poetry.

At the heart of the project is THE EXCHANGE – A special invitation for people to nominate a poem that has been a friend to them. A poet and an actor from the team set up an informal ‘booth’ where people are invited to join us, have a cup of tea and talk about the poem that has been a friend to them. In return they receive a gift, a unique recording of their chosen poem inspired by the conversation and their thoughts about the poem.

Slots are available at 10am, 11.15am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.45pm and 5pm Eastwood Room. Please call the Box Office on 01782 381381 to book a one-to-one session. 

*The Eastwood Room is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible (first floor, up steps) but we can run your session in another location if you would prefer. Please let the Box Office know on booking.
