The Pantiles Poetry Trail

Follow the poems down Chapel Place (starting with Italian delicatessan, ArteBianca) and on to the Pantiles, taking in bookshops, butchers and bed shops along the way!

Local poets have been paired with individual shops and businesses, and the resulting poems will be displayed in the shop windows during the festival. You can pick up a trail leaflet in any of the participating shops during the festival, or enjoy browsing as you go.

The trail’s been organised by poet and teacher, Sarah Salway, and some of the poems will be up on her website,, during June.
