Poetry Tent

See what’s on in our Poetry Tent – we’ve got authors reading books, we’ve got a fun dog show, we’ve got a drama workshop – we’ve even got poetry. Whatever you fancy there is bound to be something going you’ll love.

We at Sandford Festival love a good Audiobook, and there aren’t many better than those produced by Circle of Spears! They will playing tasters of some of their audiobooks in between events in the poetry tent and if you like them, they’ll be selling some on the day as well!
