Welcome to The Poetry Takeaway

We do exactly what it says on our van; we serve up personalised, quality Poetry to our visitors, performed and wrapped to Takeaway. Whether we’re at a leafy arts festival, on a busy high street, in an office space, an exhibition hall or at your corporate event, we pride ourselves on writing bespoke, accessible poetry whatever the audience.

At The Poetry Takeaway we serve up poems from a diverse and talented group of ‘poet chefs’ based all across the country, and we have worked with over 200 poets during the last 24 months alone.

We can work with or without our trusty Burger Van and have a number of offerings in addition to our standard performance.

  • We offer ‘Poetry Takeaway Live’, which is an interactive stage performance.
  • We offer our drop-in workshop The Poetry Picnic’, which covers all ages and abilities.
  • We can create bespoke workshops/presentations for Schools, Universities, community groups or in the work space.
  • Whatever the event, we’ll provide a poet or a team of poets – just let us put something truly unique together for your particular needs.

Our experience across a wide range of venues, spaces and audiences ensures strong engagement and will be specific to your event. We’ll guarantee tears, laughter and everything in between – please take a look at our gallery, testimonials and our previous events.

Why not commission a poem for someone, as a gift, a leaving present or just to cheer them up; we’ll do the hard work and have something delivered to them in writing or audio in no time at all.

We would love to chat about how we can provide something truly unique for you or your event, please contact Michael here.
