Poet on the High Street events


A performative walk around Winchester

Saturday 9 October:
11:00am - 1:00pm

Following the fun that we had on the Heritage Open Days Hidden History Walks our Poet on the Hightreet, Jonny Fluffypunk, will be doing an extended 'People's Poetry Walk' around Winchester during the festival weekend.

It's free and it's fun and the poems have all been discovered during Jonny's residency.



Pop-up Poetry at Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street
Friday 7 October  2:00 - 5:00pm

"I'm going to be popping up writing bespoke poems for punters for FREE at various places in Winchester over the summer.  And I'll be collecting YOUR STORIES to feed my own city-centred poetry. And you can make your mark on my Map of Unforgettable Moments.


It'll be fun. First come, first served."
