Ledbury Poetry Festival 2011

I was reading for the first time at the Ledbury Poetry Festival this year, and although nervous, I think I enjoyed the experience!

Here are some pictures from the festival 2011. The whole town seemed to be humming with poets and poetry throughout the weekend I was there. Obviously a highlight for me was reading with Jo Shapcott to a great audience – warm, enthusiastic and book buying – what more could you ask for!?

Jo Shapcott and Judith Palmer at Ledbury – I wonder what is in the bags?

I am admiring a poetry biscuit here – just one of the more quirky elements of the festival.

Here are a group of poets doing what they do best.
