POSTPONED: Suffolk Young Poets Competition Event

19 March 2020


Having discussed the situation with teachers and the managment at The Cut Arts Centre, we have today decided, with great sadness, that we must postpone next week’s Suffolk Young Poets event and workshops on Thursday 19 March. This is due of course to the coronavirus COVID-19 and our decision will probably come as no great surprise.


We will reschedule the SYPC celebration to take place before the end of the summer term (probably early July) and we look forward to confirming the date with everyone shortly.


With over a hundred children and their families set to come to Halesworth next week, we’re anxious to get the word out to everyone asap. Please help us by ensuring that your winning and commended young poets and their families are definitely informed – because we do not have everyone’s personal contact details.


Families that have purchased extra tickets through The Cut Box Office will be contacted seperately and will be refunded.

We will keep you posted.


With best wishes,

Dean Parkin
