'I Love roads:
The goddesses that dwell
Far along invisible
Are my favourite gods'
(Roads by Edward Thomas)

Roads and pathways set the theme for this year’s Edward Thomas Literary Festival. After the success of the inaugural, digital, festival in 2020 Petersfield Museum and the Edward Thomas Fellowship are excited to be bringing you this years event 'in person!'

With over 15 different events over 7 days with participants including; Andrew Motion, Daljit Nagra, Gillian Clarke, Kathryn Bevis, Stephanie Norgate and Edna Longley this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better.

This year's event will see live speakers and audiences hosted at both Petersfield Museum, the home of the Edward Thomas Study Centre and Bedales School in Steep as well as live streaming to allow our international audience to be part of the festival.
