The Ripon Poetry Festival - now the biggest poetry festival in Yorkshire - is back with a weekend of poetry readings, performances, workshops and book launches for poetry lovers of all ages.



Sharpen up your poetry skills at workshops for adults and children. Or come and share your work at our open mic.


There are plenty of free events including a song-writing workshop with Mike Wilson.



We celebrate the best of local writing at our Anthology launches, showcasing the best of our competition on Saturday evening 24 September.


Individual event or day tickets are available. See our website for all the details and booking information.


The events take place at various venues around Ripon.
