Welcome to Poetry Swindon

Swindon is a great place for poetry and Poetry Swindon taps into this rich vein of word-smithery with events, workshops, readings, a poetry festival and other poetic happenings. We love poetry and of course poets from Swindon, Wiltshire, the south west, Britain and The World, and tell everyone with half an ear bent our way about Swindon’s artistic heritage and rural beauty.

Support us by being a Poetry Swindon Friend by using the payment buttons below (members are made automatically friends so many thanks if you have already renewed for 2016). We love all kinds of friendship, so don't worry if you can't afford to pay us money: we like lollipops, wild-flowers, poems, help in kind and most of all your support by smiling during our events. It's important to us that you are part of our audience, whatever you can give.

Email us your help, gratitude or suggestions of how we can do better: poetryswindon@yahoo.co.uk

We do need some money though, to keep going and to make great events happen in the good town of Swindon. So if you can, make a payment below:


A no strings attached bit of money just because you love what we do and want us to do more of it.

Being a friend of ours means you get a special discount code to receive 20% off all our events. We invite you to give us poems on special occasions and we make a big fuss of them on stage, in books, or on the top of Liddington Hill. You might get Dog over-night if we leave town and need a dog-sitter (He's house trained and never chews up poems).

You also receive a special Dog wallet card with complete with Poetry Swindon contact details.

Everything is Poetry

We give you lots of free stuff and invite you sit on the couch with Dog at royal occasions. You might get special codes and the kind of friendship that is memorable and worthwhile. We tell everyone we love you.

Poetry Swindon thanks Arts Council England for their support.
