We were sad to hear that the World Curry Festival have postponed their event until later in the year.
Words in the City will continue on 6 – 7 June in Bradford with a few minor programme changes.
All ticketed events, masterclasses, FREE family events in the Poetry Yurt, the Emergency Poet and Caravan Gallery are taking place as advertised.
The Poetry Slam will take place 5.15 – 6.15pm on Saturday 6 June at Watersones, Hustlergate, Bradford. The winners will receive Waterstones vouchers and a slot at the Ilkley Literature Festival in October as prizes. The Sunday performances by the winners have been cancelled.
The Fringe will open at 10.15am on Saturday 6 June with a reading by Ian Oldfield
The following events have been cancelled:
