The Poetry Takeaway Van offers fast food for the soul. For this year’s Chester Literature Festival, the world’s first purpose-built mobile poetry emporium will be in Ellesmere Port on Saturday 19th October. The poetry takeaway will be pitching up outside the library in Civic Square, Ellemsere Port from 11- 4pm delivering personal, made-to-order poems to passers by.
The van’s staffed by “a rotating cast of the UK’s best poetry chefs who write, perform and deliver a hand-written, carefully boxed, souvenir copy of every customer’s poem” which, we’re guessing, isn’t something that happens in Civic Square all that often.
