About

The Beehive Poets are a small but open group formed in 1999. We meet weekly in the comfortable and relaxed surroundings of The New Beehive Inn on Westgate in Bradford. We aim to be a mutually supportive group providing a respectful hearing for any poets reading their work and offering friendly advice where this is wanted. Newcomers are welcome to come along on any Monday at 8.30pm.

On the second Monday of the month we usually invite poets from outside our group to give readings. On the fourth Monday we hold a Poetry Workshop, at which poets bring along at least six printed copies of a poem for workshopping. On other Mondays we have a read around.

If you look on the Guest Readers’ Page you will find a list of readers from outside the group who have read for us in the past.
