A selection of feedback from festival directors:

We love welcoming Pauline Prior Pitt to Lowdham Book Festival. Our audience always asks when she is coming back and we know we can guarantee a full house! Pauline’s performance of her clever, funny, poignant and lyrical poems is simply magical.
Jane Streeter, Director Lowdam Book Festival

Pauline is a sensation in Warwick – her events are always a sell out! She is a great inspiration for all our budding poets.
Helen Meeke, Director Warwick Words Festival

Pauline delivers her poetry with warmth and humour and never fails to keep us enthralled for the best part of an hour. I love looking round the audience and just seeing how much they enjoy her. After only two visits she has a strong fan base and we look forward to her next appearance in Wenlock in exactly the same way we would eagerly anticipate a returning star. A festival without Pauline just isn’t quite the same.
Anna Dreda, Artistic Director and Founder, Wenlock Poetry Festival
