Getting the show on the road

Teaming up with the lovely people at Poetry Ireland, Festival in a Van took to the road in summer 2021.

Ten Counties, Ten Poets, plus Singer Songwriters all coming together to remind us just how much words can truly move. We'll be visiting community centres, care homes and there'll be some public gigs too. Look out for specially commissioned poems popping up online, and in the newspapers too.
