The Great Poetry Get Together

Each year the Great Get Together is a highlight for us. We meet people, make friends and share poetry with each other. And eat cake.

Join us this year as we get together in person for our Great Poetry Get Together at Batley Library on Saturday 25th June, 2-4pm.

Everyone’s 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.

Come along to perform a poem you’ve written, one you like, or just sit back and enjoy the afternoon with a cuppa and meet some new friends.

If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to message or reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.


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. 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, subscribe to our YouTube channel, Batley Poets, to be updated as soon as we upload.
