I am very excited to be speaking about Pitch Festival 2018! I have been asked to arrange the poetry at the Firepit Stage. It is an honour to be able to invite the fine poets of Kent (and beyond) to make this another awesome year of poetry at Pitch!
Pitch Festival is a small festival in its second year that happens on Paddlesworth Court Farm in Paddlesworth, a tiny village between Hawkinge and Folkestone. It runs between the 17th to the 19th August. Pitch Festival brings a great mix of local and more national artists into a warm and welcoming environment filled with amazing extra activities, food and drink!
Here is the Facebook page, and here is the website.
This is what Pitch say:
Pitch Festival Returns for a second year. Live Music,Open Mic, Artists, Poetry, Bands, Spoken Word, Electro, Workshops, DJ’s, Food, Drink. A family Festival which Invites you to take part in more ways then buying a ticket, get involved, Pitch Up, Pitch In, Pitch out!
On Saturday 18th August and Sunday 19th August there will be an open mic for poetry, comedy and music 10.30 to 11.30 and then poetry 11.30 to 12.30. Following this will be an hour of comedy, but back to the poetry! I have six slots of 10 minutes available to poets Saturday and Sunday. For your amazing words, time and energy I can offer you a free weekend pass, camping, two free drinks and half price drinks after that. With your consent I will be taking photos and can also video sets.
I would love to have you on the bill! If you would like to perform get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org! I look forward to hearing from you!
