Recycled fridges to take centre stage at poetry festival

A number of recycled domestic appliances are set to be the focus of a literary event scheduled to take place in Leeds next week.

The poetry festival will see visitors use donated magnets to create their own messages on the doors of recycled fridges at Trinity Leeds from October 4 to 13.

According to a report by the Yorkshire Evening Post, there will be guest visits from the BBC's former chief news correspondent Kate Adie, ITV sports reporter Ned Boulting and radio broadcaster Andy Kershaw.    

The idea for the event has come from the organisers of Morley Literature Festival.

Festival director Jenny Harris has invited literature lovers to come along and let their creative juices flow.

She said: "If you've ever stood in front of your fridge waiting for inspiration to strike, this could be the perfect way to bring out your inner-poet.

"St Jude's and Emmaus Leeds help a lot of people and what they do just makes good sense – why not re-use what's already there – so it seemed logical to all of us to crowd-source unwanted fridge letters so that we can create something new together."
