The Ted Hughes project began from a group of people who wished to celebrate and commemorate Ted Hughes and his legacy in the South Yorkshire area where he spent his formative years.
The first Ted Hughes Festival in South Yorkshire was held in 2015 and the second in 2016 and included readings, talks and walks from both locally and nationally renowned poets.
Hosted in various venues including Mexborough Business Centre which was once Mexborough Grammar School where Hughes attended.
Right Up Our Street was one of the several partners of the Poetry Festival.
