WORDS & MUSIC FESTIVAL
NANTWICH 9-15TH OCTOBER 2017
Welcome to the 10th Words & Music Festival. When Thea, Fluff and I started in 2008 with a mission to bring to Nantwich the most original, diverse mix of music and poetry we could source, we'd have been happy to think that, nearly a decade on, an iconic alternative thrash band would rub shoulders here with the poet laureate, that a young indie band and an early gay rights activist would share stages with a celebrated octogenarian man of letters.
We thank our tremendous team of volunteers, Nantwich Town Council and people of Nantwich, the local businesses who support us, and we hope that, wherever you've travelled from, your Words & Music experience is a good one...let us know either way!
For our part we're happy to celebrate the festival's first 10 years. We feel like we’re just getting going…
