Every day (12.30 – 2pm) – NORWAY SQUARE

Bob Devereux’s open-air lunchtime poetry and music sessions are held every day of the Festival from 12.30-2pm-ish and feature a talented array of local and visiting performers.
Norway Square has been the beating heart of the Festival ever since it began – and it even took place during the fallow years when there wasn’t a Festival!
The only year it didn’t happen was 2020 when  it took a pandemic to stop the best free Festival show in town – and even then a few faithful made the pilgrimage for old times sake. Plus, rain never stops play with Bob moving his sessions to a nearby gallery during bad weather. FREE
