All the winners from Woodbridge Young Poets 2018 had the opportunity, as part of their prize, to read their poems at the Poetry in Aldeburgh Festival, which this year took place from 2nd to 4th November. On a bright chilly Sunday afternoon they filled the Peter Pears Gallery with the twin wonders of youth and poetry. The audience was spellbound by the readers from both Junior and Senior categories. Violet’s winning poem in the Junior category, ‘The Tower’, seemed particularly fitting in the space as it considered the effect of place and architecture on the human heart, Aldeburgh being a place of world renown poetically. All those who read there will realise how special this opportunity was and no doubt feel glad they took it.
