Download the full brochure here: All Change Wordfest 2018

The  theme  this  year  is  “All  Change”,  and  Wordfest  will  be  exploring significant  changes  following  the  end  of  World  War  1  reflected  through arts  and  literature.  Also,  change  for  women,  then  and  now,  with  Jenni Murray’s  new  book:  A  History  of  the  World  in  21  Women  and  Kate Adie’s  Fighting  on  the  Home  Front.

Peter  Owen-Jones  returns  for  a  musing  on  environmental  change and  our  response  to  this.  Poet  Ian  McMillan  shares  his  humorous  and witty  take  on  life  and  all  it  throws  at  us.

We  have  drama  about  the  lost days  when  Agatha  Christie  went  missing,  while  Brighton  Shakespeare Company  perform  the  timeless  classic:  Romeo  and  Juliet.

There  is  family  fun  with  children’s  theatre  shows,  picture  books and  creative  writing.  Part  of  the  Wordfest  mission  is  to  stimulate and  celebrate  local  creativity,  and  we  start  with  a  series  of  writing workshops  in  September,  followed  by  an  open  mic  performance  for those  who  want  to  showcase  their  work.

There  are  talks  and  events,  books,  films  and  lots  of  music  and  poetry, including  the  launch  of  Attila  the  Stockbroker’s  band  Barnstormer 1649’s  new  album  and  two  firebrand  performance  poets:  Greg  Byron and  Stephen  James-Smith.

A  fantastic  feast  awaits  and  we  look forward to enjoying it with you all
