Category Festivals

Experience the darkly magical poetry of Rebecca Tamás at the launch of her highly anticipated debut collection WITCH, alongside Raymond Antrobus and Rachael Allen.

On 20th March (to coincide with the pagan festival of the Spring Equinox) Tamás will explore the hidden histories of woman; her triumphs, fears, oppressions and strength, through the symbolic lens of the witch archetype. Through the reimagining of this occult figure, she journeys into a strange land in which feminism, mysticism, sexuality and philosophy blur into one. These are poems that unsettle, intrigue and bewitch.

Rebecca Tamás will be joined by two of the most exciting new talents in British poetry, whose debut books have both been selected for the prestigious Poetry Book Society Choice. Raymond Antrobus is author of The Perseverance (a Poetry Book of the Year in The Guardian and Sunday Times). Rachael Allen’s long awaited debut Kingdomland is published by Faber in 2019.
