  • October 5 - 7
Event Website

The third Winchester Poetry Festival draws from the deep well of contemporary writing and performance and features poets from across the UK, Ireland, the USA, Syria, Macedonia, and the Caribbean. Whatever their debt to poets who have gone before, whatever the culture, language or style from which their work springs, these poets are connected by similar concerns of identity and place.

The opening day features a stunning programme of readings, workshops, talks and close readings. The festival returns the next day with readings from first thing until late in the evening packed with international poets, children’s events, workshops and more. The final day buzzes with talks, walks, and great readings. Book now!
