Greenbelt news : Wendy Cope OBE is one of our foremost poets. After reading history at university…

Latest Festival Flyer update from Greenbelt

Wendy Cope OBE is one of our foremost poets. After reading history at university and then working as a teacher for 14 years, she became a full-time writer on the publication of her first book, Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, in 1986. She has been shaping "funny, melancholy and devastatingly observant" (The Times) poetry ever since – her fifth collection of poems, Anecdotal Evidence, having been published in 2017. Her work has the uncanny knack that all great poetry has, without shouting about it: the gentle yet unavoidable lyrical reminder to us all of what it means for us to be human. Greenbelt welcomes one of the true greats – Wendy Cope.

Greenbelt Festival

Bilal Zafar first came to Greenbelt in 2017, suffering from flu. After his set that year he ended up in hospital, proper poorly. We sent him biscuits and said that he must come back when he was feeling better. And so here he is, two years later. Known for his storytelling, low-key on-stage demeanour and fascinating insights, Bilal is also very funny. With lots of great TV work and awards now under his belt, The Guardian describes him as serving up: "Sassy Nonchalance and Unwavering Deadpan".

We're excited to bill a super-rare solo set from the lead singer of punk-reggae outfit Smiley & The Underclass Think Bob Dylan meets The Clash, Smiley combines great guitar work with razor-sharp lyrics – moving mind, soul and body. His urgency is real. With social unrest on the rise in our Disunited Kingdom and a growing climate crisis, Smiley provides a perfect soundtrack to our confusing and chaotic times.
