Newham Poetry Festival - Poetry for all is a programme of poetry, spoken word, open mic, music, dance and book stalls (including book swap and unique signed copies).
Our programme focuses on amplifying marginalised voices offering the majority of the slots to young locals, LGBTQ+ individuals, migrants and people from the global majority.
Newham Poetry Festival has been possible thanks to an Arts Council grant.
Newham Poetry Festival has worked with local schools, libraries, and youth centres for the last six months. It culminates in a public event of poetry reading and spoken word performances. If you are a local community group, school, organisation or resident and would like to be part of the programme, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
