Winchester Poetry Day 2022

Although there is not a full festival this year we are pleased to present a day of poetry activity.

The Poetry Day will see us announcing and celebrating Award winners in our seventh Winchester Poetry Prize, plus there will be a Poetry and Mindfulness workshop, a Poet on the High Street follow-up walk, a close reading with Kathryn Bevis, and the announcement and celebration of the joint Hampshire Cultural Trust/Winchester Poetry Festival Hampshire Young Poet competition. 

Tickets for a number of the events are free but should be booked as places are limited. Do join us.
