As well as winning tickets to the festival itself, poets will battle it out on the Pucker Poets Stage to become the second “Bard Of Glas-Denbury” and to perform a set at Glas-Denbury 2019.  This year we will see a return to the Pucker Stage by 2017 winner Tom Dewey.

Whether you are a regular at the many poetry/spoken word events around the country or completely new to the concept, the Pucker Poets stage will have something to entertain, inspire and connect with you. Take a well-earned break from dancing, relax in the spoken word area and let the words take you to another place. Indulge your senses and treat your mind to ideas, opinions and concepts that will bring a whole new dimension to your weekend. Bring a willing ear, an open mind and an open heart. They are all you need. Tune in to the world of spoken word and be inspired.

Watch out on social media for clips from 2017.
