Join Bradford’s Beehive Poets for an intimate, one-off live reading of new work written especially for the Bradford Literature Festival. Every year the Beehive Poets produce compelling original writing based on a unifying theme and 2016 is no exception: they’ve taken our theme of death and dying, but have approached it from a positive, celebratory angle that will make this an evening about life and the joy of existence. Come along to hear them read the resulting pieces and enjoy an evening of live poetry with their always-friendly, supportive audience – no gloom allowed.
