Join us for an inspirational three days of talks, walks, screenings, readings, discussion and debate all from the comfort of your own home as Petersfield Museum and The Edward Thomas Fellowship bring you the inaugural Edward Thomas Literary Festival.

This three-day digital event (1st-3rd October) takes the life and work of local poet Edward Thomas and expands and explores not only his own literary work but how he has inspired others, his love of nature and his sense of place and belonging.

There are over 20 renowned poets, writers, and academics taking part, including: Daljit Nagra, Kathryn Bevis, Matthew Hollis, Imtiaz Dharker, and The Robert Frost Society. The event also features '2 Poets, 1 Conversation: Andrew Motion and Michael Longley'. It is going to be a series of events not to be missed.
