THE organisers of Winchester Poetry Festival are taking poetry into the market towns and villages over the next few weeks.

The four readings, entitled At One With Love, At One With Grief, feature Hampshire Poet 2014, Joan McGavin and Winchester poet Stephen Boyce (co-artistic director of the festival) plus two guest poets at each venue.

The tour will promote the Poetry Festival to be held on September 12-14.

Joan McGavin said: “There’s a terrific appetite for poetry and these evenings of reflection and entertainment will give people a lively insight into the work of Hampshire poets now as well as paying tribute to the poetry of the First World War in this centenary year.”

The tour has already taken in Bishop’s Waltham Library and Perins School in Alresford. The remaining schedule is:

  • July 31, 7.30pm: Library, Station Road, Romsey. Guest poets Robyn Bolam and Paul Gardner;
  • Saturday August 2, 6pm: All Saints Church, Denmead. Guest poets John Haynes and Lynda O’Neill.

Tickets are £3.50 on the door.
