With heavy hearts, we’re announcing
the postponement of the
Kendal Poetry Festival
We’ve put a tremendous amount of work and love into creating a fantastic line-up in a beautiful setting, and – subject to funding and circumstances – we fully intend to restage the festival. However, as the situation continues to develop and change, we’re currently unable to specify a date.
For ticket holders, full refunds are easily available -simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and order number and they will process as soon as possible.
If you are in a position to do so, you may want to consider waiting until you can transfer your ticket, or converting some of your booking payment into a donation to the Brewery Arts Centre. This fantastic charitable organisation has waived its usual ticket-handling fee despite the huge challenges they are facing as a cultural venue – just indicate your donation when you email them.
Like many of you, we are trying to adapt to a transformed way of life, whilst managing illness, fear and multiple responsibilities. We are both aware that in times like these, it is easy to overlook the arts – but poetry is perhaps more vital than ever.
For that reason, until we can be together in Kendal, we’ll aim to maintain a presence via our website and Facebook page.
In the meantime, please enjoy these beautiful poems written and performed by one of our festival poets, the wonderful Alison Brackenbury www.poetryarchive.org/poet/alison-brackenbury/
And until we meet again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
