The Power of Words Festival, in its inaugural year will honour the work of Pat Ingoldsby as the first recipient of our "Living Poets Society Award". Pat, who embodies the spirit of our festival, has always been an inspiration to the festival team.
On Saturday 24th August David Delaney will share some of Pat’s work, and will invite audience members to share their favourite poems of Pat’s. A number of pieces of poetry will be dramatised and performed by invited actors, Mary Pat Moloney and Claire Blennerhassett.
This is a free event, but we ask that you consider purchasing one of Pat's books which will be available on the evening.
