After the roaring success of our Sonnet-a-thon in 2016 to mark the 400 year anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and las year’s Paradise Lost, this year we celebrate The Waste Land. Festival goers are invited to join acclaimed writers in a weekend-long recital of TS Eliot’s revolutionary poem, a devastating vision of modern civilization between the two World Wars. Festival Curator Clare Conville will lead authors and performers in reading all twelve books over the course of the weekend.

You can sign up to take part on arrival at Curious – ask at the box office for more details.
