A Larkin Day in Loughborough

The Philip Larkin Society, in conjunction with The University of Loughborough and local author and tour guide Lynne Dyer, are pleased to announce the first ever Larkin Day in Loughborough on Wednesday 2nd November.

Philip Larkin was a frequent visitor to Loughborough, where his mother and sister lived for over 27 years. The town also features as a backdrop in the many letters to each other.

The day will begin at 2.00 PM with a two hour guided walk led by Lynne Dyer and Philip Pullen. The walk will cover many of the places that would have been familiar to the Larkins, as well as places that have changed beyond recognition.

Meet outside the Charnwood Museum in Queen’s Park. For more details and to book a place please email

At 6.00 PM, PLS Trustee and Chair of Larkin100, Philip Pullen, will be giving an illustrated talk about Larkin’s relationship with his mother and the part the town played in her life.

Full details about the talk and booking arrangements can be found via this link.
