Good to see Mayor or Worcester, Paul Denham, in the photo with Suz and Heather. What a happy group they are 😀

The sixth, sensational, Worcestershire Festival exploded in to life with the crowning of our new Worcestershire Laureate Suz Winspear! The opening night was magical with readings from young writers and cool compere Matt Windle.

Shortlisted superstars, Charley Barnes and Peter Sutton, wowed us with their words. Peter’s performance was impressive and Charley’s was heartbreakingly beautiful.

Suz Winspear, Worcester’s ‘Resident Goth’, was almost speechless! After being shortlisted several times for the honour, this award was more than well deserved. Suz reminded the Worcester audience of our heritage, declaring that, as Laureate, the poet will raise awareness of our modern poets and local talents to ensure this generation leaves an impressive heritage for others.

Congratulations to Charley and Peter for a super achievement. And congratulations to Suz, Worcestershire’s Poet Laureate!

  1. Please pass on my congratulations – a well-deserved winner. Her hard efforts have paid off! I look forward to a darker, more mysterious year of Poet Laureate.
