Say it with a poem at Trowbridge Town Hall on National Poetry Day, Thursday 6th October 11am – 4pm.The theme for this year’s National Poetry Day is ‘messages’.

Trowbridge Arts invites you to think of a message you’d like to give to someone and “say it with a poem” at Trowbridge Town Hall.  A friendly team of local poets and artists will be in residence on the day, writing and illustrating their own message-poems and encouraging you to create your own.  Come and join them!


Can a Town Hall Tale inspire your poem?
You might choose to draw on the Town Hall’s fascinating history to inspire a poem or drawing. Use events from your own life, or write something completely imaginary – the choice is yours.  All poems and illustrations will be on display in an exhibition we hope you will invite your friends and family to visit.
