The Festival is facing continuing challenges and uncertainty as a result of Covid-19, but we are keen to offer an opportunity for people to gather, celebrate and enjoy poetry. Therefore, 2021 will see the first ever hybrid Ledbury Poetry Festival, with a mixture of online and in person events. Digital events are happening across the ten days of the Festival.
