Friends of Winchester Poetry Festival

The festival is an independent charitable trust and, although it has the support of Arts Council, local business, trusts and foundations, it needs the support of Friends to ensure its continuity, and especially its work in fostering the appreciation, practice and enjoyment of poetry.

 

Supporting the festival directly through your Friendship will bring you the company of like-minded people who share your love of literature and poetry. You can also enjoy regular information about the festival and its plans, and know you are helping the festival develop its educational and community projects throughout the year.

  • Invitations to the annual spring reception with a distinguished writer and to special talks and events during the year

  • Regular updates on the development and progress of the Festival, its programme and activities

  • Priority booking for Festival events
