Post-fest update

Thank you to everyone who joined in the seventh annual Shoreham Wordfest: audience, performers, volunteers and partners..

There were 32 events over 19 days, with over 2000 attendances during this year's Wordfest, our most successful yet. We gathered a huge number of feedback forms at our many events, all of which we have read and taken on board.

Our latest newsletter reflects on the various events and some of your feedback click here to read.

The worthy winners of this year's Slam were Life in 108, a poem by Matt Francis-Cooke and Mrs Baxter's Quiet Day a short story by Jennifer Kharibian. Both are featured on our website. Click here to view.

Poems from the workshop on poetic responses to the artwork of Eric Ravilious are featured in the Shoreham Wordfest posters on platform 1 of Shoreham Station.

We will continue to review the feedback we have received from this year's programme, so do please contact us if there is more you would like to contribute. Also, your ideas and suggestions for next year's autumn festival.

The Celebrating Shakespeare team are planning events for April 23 and we will also be linking with the Adur Art Trail in June. We will bring you updates on other related events during the year.

With best wishes from everyone on the Shoreham Wordfest team.
