The Poetry Machine: Heart-fizzing poetry inventions made especially for you! 

Poet, Beth Calverley, will be joining us at Quay Words with her word-whirring Poetry Machine. This is your chance to experience poetry, created in response to your thoughts, feelings, ideas, and discoveries. 

Pop by the Custom House between 11 am and 3 pm to co-create a poem with Beth, distilling your words into a poem to take home with you. Just follow the sound of her vintage typewriter and look out for the machine’s bright yellow umbrella, flagpole and bubble engine… 

 You’re welcome to take part on your own,  come along with a loved one, or bring a whole group! 

Our partners Honeyscribe will also have a making activity in Exeter Custom House with ceramic artist Phoebe Cummings
