Felixstowe Café Poets At Felixstowe Book Festival 2017

Tickets went on sale for Friends of the Felixstowe Book Festival earlier in April and tickets for all went on sale from 21st April. 

Felixstowe Café Poets' event this year is at 9.30a.m. Saturday 1st July 2017.  They will be in His Lordship’s Library (their normal meeting room) and they would be very pleased if as many of you as possible went to their event at the Book Festival.

Call for Poems

We will again be collaborating with Waveney and Blyth Arts on a number of Walks and Workshops over the summer. In particular we have been asked whether members have written or are prepared to write poems about the old railway that used to run up to Southwold. There will be a walk along the old track from Blythborough to Southwold on August 1st and the organiser Ann McClarnon would like to have some poetry about the line read at different parts of the walk, either by the poets themselves or other behalf.
