01. Poetry Reading and Wild Swim: Nina Mingya Powles and Alycia Pirmohamed

Fri 30 Jun 2023
10:30am - 12:30pm | Woodside Lodges Campsite - Event has now taken place.

Kick off this year’s festival by diving into a wild swim! Ticket holders will be transported via minibus to Woodside Lodges Campsite, which boasts a lovely swimming pond. There, poets Alycia Pirmohamed and Nina Mingya Powles will give an open-air, pondside reading (bring towels and picnic blankets so as to sit on the grass), and take a dip afterwards. Both Pirmohamed and Powles have written about their relationship(s) to water, works of many ideas, which run their course and coalesce in bright, unexpected ways. Please note all bathing is at your own risk.

Woodside Lodges Campsite (minibus transport is included in your ticket price and full details will be provided about this when you book.)
