Ledbury Poetry Festival 2011

My first trip to the festival as i) it's a along drive and ii) it's spread out over 10 days, so it's hard to pick quite when to go, but yesterday was a treat: three lovely readings from Peter Sansom, Ian Duhig and Jo Shapcott. I'm not a fan of their 'partner' readers (Caroline Bird, Anthony Thwate, Anne Caldwell) but that's my taste for you. Ledbury is a beautiful town. On my next visit, I will stay longer than a day and have a good look around.
