The Charles Causley Young People’s Poetry Prizes

16.00-17.00. The Cutfield Freeman Marquee. Admission free.

Our artistic director, Patrick Gale, is a patron of the Charles Causley Trust and sponsors the trust’s annual nationwide poetry competition for young poets. At this free festival event you can hear the winning and shortlisted poets read their work and cheer them on as they step up to receive their prizes. This year the prizes will be being given out by Kate Clanchy MBE, not only a noted poet but a pioneering teacher of the liberating force of poetry to young people.
