Stratford's annual Poetry Festival is held at the Shakespeare Centre and Shakespeare Institute. Both venues host poetry evenings with RSC actors and poets reading the works of William Shakespeare, John Donne and Dylan Thomas.
The programme includes the acclaimed Shakespeare Review, The Hamlet Muse and Sweet William. Aeronwy Thomas, daughter of Dylan Thomas, hosts an evening dedicated to her father, and there is a special evening when local poets can attend and read their own work.
