The Eastbourne Poetry Festival will be launched this Saturday, September 16th, from 12 midday until 4pm at the Grove Theatre,  Eastbourne.

Entry is £2.50 per person, and everyone is welcome to participate, or they can just come along as an audience member.

On the day there will be a sign up sheet for performers, and people will perform in a “first come, first served” order on the main stage of The Grove Theatre.

The poems can be either original work, or old favourites.

Tickets are available via the link on Facebook called Eastbourne Poetry Festival or by cash on the door.
