The European Poetry Festival bursts back into live life with 7 events in 10 days in venues across London.

Celebrating poetry across styles and languages, and pushing innovation, this is a welcome chance to see poets from beyond the UK presenting new works, made for the festival. 

The 24th of November is dedicated to Hungarian Poetry, where two emerging young poets will represent the country, Anna.-Kata Ferentz and Anna Vados. They will perform unique duets with Iris Colomb and Rushika Wick.

There will also be solo readings from the visiting Hungarian poets and Kristian Carlsson, Ana Seferovic, Freke Räihä, Jon Ståle Ritland, Bjørn Vatne and Ferdinand Jonsson.

A celebration of contemporary Hungarian poetry sees a duo of Hungary’s most inventive and eminent contemporary poets come to London to present brand new collaborations with Britain-based counterparts. Expect new live works in the literary and avant-garde tradition that represent the best of 21st century Hungarian poetry alongside solo readings by European poets from across the continent visiting for the festival.
