The Batley Poets Get Together

Join us on Saturday 20th June 5 – 7pm for some poetry and conversation as we Get Together via webcams and smartphone cameras.

Each year the Great Get Together is a highlight for us. We meet people, make friends and share poetry with each other. We don’t want this year to be any different.

Everyone is welcome, whether it’s your first time or your fifty-first time. We’ve always said ‘Everyone’s a Batley Poet’, and we haven’t been proven wrong yet.

Visit our Eventbrite page for more details and to register, or email


Sunday’s are wonderfully lazy days. So we decided to add to that laziness with #ShareAPoemSunday.

The idea is simple, post a poem on Sunday mentioning @BatleyPoets and #ShareAPoemSunday to add a little poetry to everyone’s timelines.

Bards of Batley Available Online

Our first poetry book, Bards of Batley, is now available to buy online on eBay. Follow this LINK or search for ‘Bards of Batley’ on the eBay website. Remember, it’s still available to buy at Batley Library and Bagshaw Museum if you live locally.

While we don’t seem to have anything else planned at the moment we hope to think of something soon. If you have any ideas of things we should do, or already be doing, email or Contact Us.

In the meantime, click to view photos or videos from our previous events. You can find them under the media heading at any time. Subscribe to our YouTube channel, Batley Poets, to be updated as soon as we upload.
