ArtsFest 2017 – A literature weekend

The second weekend of Droitwich ArtsFest was all dedicated to poetry and words. On 22 July, the day started with the poetry reading at 11am on the St Andrew’s Square.  ‘Pens and Needles’ writers’ group from Redditch performed in front of the Meetbox.  

The Poetry Extravaganza, with its 5th year at Park’s Café,  is a well-established event in Droitwich. On the evening of 22 July, Park’s Café was buzzing with poets and writers (Fergus Mc Gonigal, Nina Lewis, Maggie Doyle, Polly Stretton, Mike Alma, Amanda Bonnick, Sarah Leavesley, Jenna Plewes, Ruth Stacey, Leena Batchelor and Helen Calcutt) and the keen audience really enjoyed the evening. The literature event coordinator was Nina Lewis, Worcestershire Poet Laureate.
