On behalf of the Battle Festival organisers, Battle Town Council would like to help inform residents of this month long, annual arts and music festival running throughout October in Battle, East Sussex. The festival has a diverse, family-friendly focus, with an eclectic range of events and activities by internationally acclaimed, award-winning artists.

However due to the arrival of Covid-19, there will be a few changes to this year’s festival. The good news is that the festival Patrons, BAFTA nominated and Shakespearian actor Anton Lesser and Ivor Novello Winner Tim Rice- Oxley have agreed to do all they can in October to keep the Festival in the lime light. Anton Lesser has agreed to read up to 10 poems that have been nominated by lovers of the Festival.

In order to get your favourite poem read and posted on the festival website and social media all you have to do is to nominate your favourite poem and the reasons why this is so special to you.

Nominations can be made via email to info@battlefestival.co.uk or popping your suggestions into the Almonry. Tim Rice-Oxley will also do something very special showcasing Keane’s long-term support of the Festival.
