An annual poetry festival is returning this year with special events focusing on the First World War.

Some of the most esteemed poets will gather at the event held in King's Lynn Town Hall on Friday, September 28 to Sunday, September 30.

The festival will include two discussion events looking at war poetry to coincide with the centenary of the end of the 1918 Armistice.

The weekend is spread out into sessions which include readings, interviews and discussions. Guests can choose which to attend individually or to attend the weekend in its entirety.

There will be an opportunity to speak to many of the poets during the event. Ticket prices are £8.50 per session and £37.50 for the full weekend. Students pay £1 per session and £5 for the weekend.
