All those things make for the very best poetry festival there is ... it happens in Swindon (http://www.poetryswindon.org) and it get better and better each year.
Here are this year's three wonderful Poets-in-Residence reading more of their fine (and often funny) poems at this morning's breakfast final event ...
All three of them well and truly took up residency in the Tent Palace of the Delicous Air and all the other places in and around the Richard Jefferies Museum http://richardjefferies.org where words were read, written and heard during the Festival
Many thanks to Hilda Sheehan, http://hildasheehanpoetry.blogspot.co.uk, and her team for one more magical festival.
2018's is already in my diary.
