A ceremony to award the winners of the East Riding Festival of Words Poetry Competition 2022 will be held this week.
On Friday, 27 January, from 6pm to 8pm, North Bridlington Library will host an event celebrating the winning entries. It will be an opportunity to hear from the judges and listen to the winning entries at the Poetry Extravaganza. You can get tickets for this event for free right now.
