08. Helen Dunmore Tribute

Hosted by Neil Astley, Editor of Bloodaxe Books, this event will celebrate Helen Dunmore’s life, work and particularly her poetry.

Helen Dunmore was a great supporter of Ledbury Poetry Festival, coming many times to read, and she contributed a poem to the Festival’s 20th anniversary anthology with a message saying “Ledbury Poetry Festival stores up the essence of poetry throughout its packed, intense and sunlit days.”

Featuring poets including Philip Gross, Angela France, Sara-Jane Arbury, Ruth Stacey, Sarah James, Kathy Pimlott, Elisabeth Sennett Clough, Shauna Darling Robertson, Lesley Ingram and admirers including Ursula Owen and Adam Munthe.
