In the mood for ....

Monday 4 January 2016

Struggling to decide what to put on your personal wish list for StAnza 2016?  Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered. Our website now offers enhanced filter and other options to help you find what most appeals to you in our programme. First of all, check out the left hand side of the main festival Events Page and you’ll notice that as well as being able to search for particular types of events, for example Spoken Word, Music & Performance or Visual Art, you can now also filter by theme or focus. So for this year, that’s Body of Poetry, City Lines, Architecture or German. And if you have a favourite poet taking part, if you find one event they’re involved in, the page for that event gives a list of all their other festival activities.

And we’re not stopping there. With tickets about to go on sale (on Friday 8th January but see our previous blog post for full details), we’ll also be offering other filters to suit your mood, whether you’re looking for something to make you laugh, something educational, something to get you out and about, or something for the when you just don’t want to go to bed.  So if you have suggestions for a mood filter, do let us know, either in a comment below, or via social media, or by email to
