About Beeston Poets

Beeston Poets is a programme of readings by well-known poets in Beeston Library. It follows on from the ‘Poets in Beeston’ series which ran from 1993 for nearly twenty years.

The 2012 series started with Jackie Kay, who was followed by Neil Astley and Andy Croft.

The 2013 spring season is now confirmed – we’ll start with a bevy of poets from Yorkshire in Versions of the North on 26th April, and continue with a brace of poets (also from Up North) in Ophelia’s Sistas on 24th May. Martin Figura’s ‘Whistle’ will conclude the season on July 5th.

Please note that tickets for Ophelia's Sistas and Whistle will be on sale here from April 27th.
