Ways you can support us:

Winchester Poetry Festival is a registered charity (Number 1150997) run by volunteer trustees. We aim to bring the best in contemporary poetry to Winchester. We make a point of paying all our invited poets and contributors professional rates and giving their work the best possible showcase. To achieve this we need to secure a broad base of income from ticket sales, donations, sponsorship and grants from private trusts and public sector bodies. There are a number of ways in which you can support the festival:
