Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Well, looking at our current summer weather, it won’t be much of a compliment nor very original. No matter, I’m sure the guys at The Poetry Takeaway will provide all the made-to-order verse you could dream of. Festival Pier will be the host of the mobile poetry emporium for six days (June 26-July 1) where top poets will serve up free and bespoke poems in ten minutes or less. With an amazing line-up of poets, it’s no wonder it’s our pick from the Time Out Hot List this week. Carly-Ann Clements
