Commissioned poems responding to classic nonsense verse

After the year we’ve all gone through, we felt it was important to ensure that the festival would offer some moments of levity, some nonsense verse, smiles and even a few laughs. To help with this, together with HappenStance Press we revisited some classic nonsense verse and commissioned responses from four poets known to have a light hand when required. We hope you enjoy the results.


Come back to this page from 6 March to enjoy new poems from D.A. Prince, Annie Fisher, Alan Hill and Janet Loverseed.


In partnership with HappenStance Press

Annie Fisher: James Fisher
Janet Loverseed: James Boardman
