After the huge success of WORDfest2015, Harris Academy Beckenham are delighted to announce that WORDfest2016 will be taking place on Saturday 16th July 2016, on Beckenham Green!

WORDFest will continue to be a celebration of the spoken and written word, with readings and discussion, poetry, song, books, plays and other writings! WORDfest will have engaging writing, reading and active workshops for all ages as well as a performance space and stalls from local artists.
