Across the Midlands there are several festivals but there seem to have been very few events like this in the Black Country. Yet there is a rich literary tradition and spirit in the city deserving of being celebrated and showcased. We would like to use this festival as an opportunity to do so.
There are lots of literary groups within the local community which this initial pilot festival has been completely reliant on. As a currently unfunded project we owe a great debt of gratitude to the overwheming generosity of the performers (or the performers with origins in the local community) local businesses and venues who have given their time, resources and enthusiasm to help us make this weekend happen.
We envisaged this to be a small event to test the water for establishing an annual festival. Due to the sheer volume of support and interest the programme will be revealed in phased stages. Further event announcements will be made on Friday 25th November.
