Worrying news from the Poetry Trust (and by extension the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival).
At this stage it is too early to answer if there will be a Festival next year. In early 2016, after our strategic review, we will make an announcement. Please be assured we are absolutely intent on maintaining the existence of our Festival, along with its excellence. A showcase for poetry and poets from around the world, a commitment to new voices, a close engagement with poetic craft – these are all the things you care passionately about and which we want to see endure. But we need to do this on a secure financial footing.
