Verve Poetry Festival 2023

VERVE artwork


Birmingham's very own Verve Festival of Poetry and Spoken Word returns to Birmingham Hippodrome!
Now in its sixth year, Verve has become synonymous with a lively and celebratory approach to programming poetry of every different kind.

Whether it be raucous performance poetry events, quiet reading events, studious workshops, mind-blowing dramatic poetry, collaborative work or open mic poetry – the programme encourages audiences to see their favourite poets and to try something new – to join in, create, listen and learn.

Whether new to poetry or an old hand, there's something for everyone to enjoy at VERVE!
