The Twenty-Fifth Aldeburgh Poetry Festival
Aldeburgh is the UK’s pre-eminent annual celebration of national and international contemporary poetry.
The 25th Aldeburgh Poetry Festival weekend will take place 8-10 November 2013.
With the festival’s mix of well known or international names, lesser-known voices and exceptional newcomers, we’ll be welcoming a fresh line-up of 30 poets from seven countries.
And given the 56 interconnecting events on offer, 13 of them free – readings, workshops, discussions, craft-talks, close-readings, performances and exhibitions – you can expect the very best of today’s poetry from every angle.
The full programme is now available to read online and download.

This is the best poetry festival – indeed literary festival – that I have ever been to.
Woooah what a festival! My mind was fizzing like alka seltzer. The genius of it is its electric nature of styles and reading, for a poetry nerd like me this is what it'’s all about!
