Brighton Poem-a-thon for Refugees

Team photo

THANKS for visiting our team page for Brighton Poem-a-thon - think of it as a relay poetry event! We are all poets and readers of poetry based in Brighton and East Sussex raising money for refugees and asylum seekers.

Please choose a poet to sponsor from our team.  You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us to reach and even break through this goal. 

We will all be raising money for the Refugee Council who work with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK. Many refugees have lost everything and their lives will never return to normal.  The Refugee Council offers a helping hand to support and empower them to rebuild their lives.

BRIGHTON POEM-A-THON                       

Between 12 noon to 10 pm on Sunday 11th December, a  relay of 50 poets and readers will each read for 8 minutes throughout the day at the Komedia, Brighton. 

FREE ENTRY

Komedia 44-47 Gardner Street, Brighton. BN1 1UN

Audience members can join us at any time throughout the day, staying for as long or as short a time as they wish.  There will be refreshments, a bookstall and tombola as well as information about our charity.
