First Art’s Byron Busk

in support of Byron Festival, Hucknall

First Art’s Takeaway Poetry Event – Hucknall Market

Saturday, 5th August

For the second year running, we will be celebrating Lord Byron in his home town of Hucknall. We have invited the Takeway Poetry team to Hucknall Market Place. Takeaway Poetry is the ‘world’s first mobile poetry emporium - staffed by a rotating cast of poets, it serves up free, bespoke, make-to-order verse in ten minutes or less. All orders include a one-on-one performance as well as a handwritten serving in branded packaging (open or wrapped).’

On the day there will also be a selection of food stalls and other entertainment from our friends at Active Ashfield and Ashfield District Council. Have a look at their flyer below.


The 19th Annual Byron Festival will happen between Friday, 7th July and Friday, 14th July 2017

It is a celebration of Byron in Venice, it’s carnival time!
