9th Annual Sussex Poetry Festival

The Ninth Annual Sussex Poetry Festival will take place over Friday and Saturday, 29th and 30th June 2018. 

This year the festival will take place upstairs at the Rose Hill, on Rose Hill Terrace, behind London Road, Brighton. 

The festival, as always, will feature readings from some of the most exciting contemporary poets, and will host local, national, and international performers.

Stay tuned for the line-up.

The Rose Hill is a wheelchair-accessible venue, but unfortunately does not (yet) have wheelchair-accessible toilets. There are, however, accessible toilets yards from the venue, inside The World's End pub on London Road. The festival will be seated. There is a bar in the venue, and an outside smoking area.

As part of this year's festival, we will be helping the Rose Hill to raise funds to install wheelchair-accessible toilets so that we can continue to develop our relationship with this wonderful community venue.
