Hampshire Poet invites

Ghost River Collective

6.00 - 7.00pm


The Hampshire Poet Invites series are carefully-curated evening readings in which Kathryn Bevis (Hampshire Poet 2020-21) invites local poetry organisations to showcase and celebrate the best of their work.


Formed in 2018, Ghost River  Collective is a trio of three Southampton-based poets, Anita Foxall, Damian O'Vitch and Dave Hubble.


Known for the quality of their writing and for their compelling performances linked to place – heritage, landscape, people and history woven into current events, issues and themes – Ghost River Collective’s recent commissions have included the Mayflower 400 project, the Eastleigh Poetry Trail, and the NST City Theatre’s Southampton Stories poetry promenade.
