Ó Bhéal’s Winter Warmer – Poetry Festival

Friday – Sunday, 26th – 28th November 2021


Ó Bhéal’s 9th Winter Warmer (and 1st hybrid) festival presents 30 poets live from eight countries. Almost half of these featured guests will appear in-person at Nano Nagle Place, with others appearing virtually. All events will be free to access on our Festival Stage and via our usual social media channels. In-person audiences for all events will be limited to 60 and will run on a first-come first-serve basis, in line with HSE Covid guidelines.

The festival will host two poetry workshops, music from Nóirín Ní Riain (in-person), a filmed poetry play, a round table discussion centered on Nurturing Poetry with event organisers and poets from three port cities, a Many Tongues of Cork / An Earth Song session and a closed-mic set for poets who have featured regularly in Ó Bhéal’s online open-mic sessions during 2021.

The shortlist and prize-giving for Ó Bhéal’s International Poetry-Film Competition will be screened and simulcast, as will an additional, special selection of poetry-films made in Ireland.
