The Edward Thomas Literary Festival

Last updated on 16th September 2020


1st October, 2020 – 3rd October, 2020

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 digitally bring you the inaugural Edward Thomas Literary Festival.

This three-day digital event (1st-3rd October) takes the life and work of 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.

With over 20 renowned poets, writers, and academics taking part, including: Daljit Nagra, Kathryn Bevis, Matthew Hollis, Imtiaz Dharker, the Robert Frost Society and featuring ‘Two poets in conversation: Michael Longley and Andrew Motion’, it is going to be a series of events not to be missed.

After most of the sessions there will be an opportunity to join in a live Q&A with the participants.

Festival sessions will be ticketed and then accessed through Facebook, Youtube, Zoom, Twitter and much more with events and sessions planned for all platforms!

Whilst there will be no formal charge for attending events, donations will be gratefully received and if made via Petersfield Museum they are eligible for Gift Aid. As booking is being undertaken through Eventbrite a minimum donation of £1 per event is required to meet their minimum criteria.

If you would like to be kept up to date with the festival’s development and announcements and find out how you can be involved in sessions you can preregister by emailing:
