Poetry lovers were not deterred by the heavy rain. Benefiting from the cosy indoor locations within Southwell Library and Southwell Minster, organisers from Nottinghamshire County Council reported excellent crowds to welcome top poets including Wendy Cope and Ian McMillan.
Sheelagh Gallagher, Literature and Reading Development Officer at Nottinghamshire County Council, added: "We also had 100 plus people for Wendy Cope, great audiences for all events including the fish and chip supper with reading of ancient Mariner, as well as for Valerie Laws and Char March. The workshops were also extremely popular and there was a real buzz about the whole festival."
