WORDS of Bromsgrove


In 1979, WORDS began bringing  the best of the spoken and written word to Bromsgrove and we celebrated our 40th Anniversary earlier this year.

Since the revival of WORDS last year, we have had three very successful events - the poet, Jo Bell, in the Bromsgrove Library as part of the 2019 Bromsgrove Festival,  Meet The Archers at Avoncroft Museum in October, and then a sell out event at Artrix in February with Ann Cleeves.

Very disappointingly, but inevitably, we have had to postpone all our forthcoming events until further notice because of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

We were very disappointed to have had to postpone  From Script to Screen  with Peter Lloyd, scheduled for April. and This Sporting Life  with Pat Murphy, scheduled for June as part of the 2020 Bromsgrove Festival, but it is our intention to try arrange both of them for a later date.

As we know more about our forthcoming events, we will update our website accordingly - so please log onto it on a regular basis - or email WORDS at info@bromsgrovewords.com  and ask to join our mailing list.

Doors - Writing for Refugees 

Saturday, June 20th was World Refugee Day and the local organisation, Bromsgrove and Redditch Welcomes Refugees (BRWR), has marked the occasion by publishing a booklet of poems entitled Doors - Writing for Refugees.
It is a selection of poems which local people and other have written about the refugee situation, and has been compiled as a fundraiser for BRWR.  A door can be to the past, the present or the future, and we can imagine the past, or imagine the future we would like.
WORDS has given BRWR a donation towards the printing costs of the booklet, which is on sale at £5 per copy, plus £1 for post and packing.  The net proceeds will go to BRWR funds, which support local refugees.  If you would like to order a copy, simply email - info@brwr.co.uk.  For more information about BRWR visit their website https://brwr.uk
