PIGBABY COMES TO TOWN!
The 2011 Brighton Poetry Festival
Tuesday‭ ‬22‭ ‬– Sunday‭ ‬26‭ ‬November

Following the fun of 2010's rural Pigbaby party,‭ ‬this year the Alice-inspired event is coming to town,‭ as Pighog runs the‭ ‬2011‭ ‬Brighton Poetry Festival. Its talent-packed programme features free 6pm events at Three and Ten, Brighton and ticketed 8pm events just over the road at the Redroaster Coffee House.

One of Pighog's defining characteristics is an unwillingness to be bracketed in a particular school of poetics. Working in serendipitous cooperation with other organisers we've produced a programme which boasts a rich variety of form, emotion and concept.

The Festival places some of the most compelling established and emerging talents from the Sussex area alongside national and international poets of seminal importance. We believe Pigbaby has something to move and to stimulate no matter what your literary background.

With capacity limited you are invited to browse through the listings and buy your tickets in advance, entitling you to reserved seats. For best value you can invest in a bumper value festival pass.
