The Word Poetry Competition - Winners' Showcase

Sunday 29 March | 1:00pm

In the beginning was the Word… creative writers of all ages have put pen to paper and made these words echo in their work. Poetry can help us understand the world around us, shine new light in dark corners, and express ourselves in fresh ways.

Compered by the new Staffordshire Poet Laureate Mel Wardle Woodend, The Word Winner’s Showcase features new poems inspired by the awe and wonder of the anniversary of the Moon landing and that one small step for humanity, to reflect on the origins of the universe and the vastness of space, light and time, and to explore our fragile earth through the themes of creation and cosmology, space travel and astronomical discovery. 

Come and hear the winners of all 3 categories for the 2019 competition.

Please book tickets in advance and 'Pay What You Can' on the day.
For wheelchair users, please book directly on 01543 306150.
