Poets & Players is known for its imaginative programming of complementary arts — poetry with music, dance and visual art — in several striking settings in Manchester, UK,  particularly the Whitworth Art Gallery. Newer writers are showcased alongside established poets and musicians.

All the events are free to attend.

Many past performances are featured on our Youtube channel . You can also see slide shows or image galleries of some recent ones on the pages archiving events in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011, or on the Poets and Players Facebook page.

The Dear List information website is an invaluable source of information about poetry events in Manchester and the North West, and gives details of upcoming Poets&Players performances. To subscribe to Dear List email notifications of events click here.
