Manchester Poetry Festival [UK]:
MPF 2005

With only a couple of days to go - we are all getting very excited indeed at the prospect of this year's festival.

The Urban Salon events will be fantastic (John Stammers, Matthew Welton, Clare Pollard, and Daljit Nagra), the fantastic AISLE16 with their Poetry Boyband show - ripping up the text books with their hardcore stage poetry - are selling fast with coverage everywhere from the Big Issue to the Gay Times.

Joolz Denby, launching her new collection at Matt & Phred's, is going to be a top evening's entertainmner and you can see the best slam poets in the regions win a publishing contract at the Stage to Page slam final.

To round off the festival, we are delighted to present, in association with the University of Bolton, Carol Ann Duffy launching her new collection, Rapture. Carol Ann will be reading her work and offering a rare chance to listen to her poems set to music in the beautiful Royal Exchange Theatre. We can't think of a better way to round off 12 years of top class poetry. I should warn you that tickets for Carol Ann's launch are selling very quickly indeed - so get on the 'phone to the box office on 0161 833 9833 quick sharp to make sure you get a seat!
