Amy Key’s debut collection Luxe “is a magnificent spree in a bric-a-brac shop. A haul of pre-loved and glittering objets – pralines in a crystal bowl, a handful of tame ladybirds, a portrait in vinyl and cola-cubes – are artfully displayed on the poems’ shelves to represent the conflicts and connections of a fabulous circle of friends and lovers, those real, remembered and imagined” (Julia Bird).

She is editor of Best Friends Forever: poems on female friendship.

This event is hosted by Chloe Garner, Artistic Director of Ledbury Poetry Festival.

Performers signed up to on arrival. Everyone was limited to two poems or four minutes maximum.
