Shoreham Wordfest organises an annual autumn festival in Shoreham-by-Sea and the wider Adur District which attracts audience from across the South East, featuring local writers and performers alongside national and international poets, authors and actors.
We have been growing since our first weekend of events in 2011, and this year’s October Wordfest had 35 events over 21 days with over 2000 attendances, featuring Jenni Murray, Kate Adie and Ian McMillan.
We also run creative writing classes, children’s events and work with our partner organisations to bring a range of arts together including exhibitions at the Skyway Gallery.
We are already planning events for Wordfest 2019 in September and October, and welcome ideas and suggestions. Over the coming months our website is developing to become more interactive to include contributions, discussions and signposting other creative activities in the region.
