Sadly, the current pandemic has robbed us of the chance to get together in person this year for our customary December commemoration. However, we are delighted to be able to announce an exciting virtual alternative for the afternoon of Saturday 5th December commencing at 3.00 PM GMT.
John Osborne, a co-founder of The Philip Larkin Society, has written, lectured and broadcast extensively on Larkin, and will be chairing an online Zoom session involving three of the UK’s most exciting and highly acclaimed new poets all of whom have a strong connection with Hull. In addition to reading their work, the contributors, Rachael Allen, Mary McCollum and Rachel Long, will consider the extent to which Larkin and his contemporaries have relevance for the future development of their writing.

We hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us for what will be an experimental ‘first’ for the Society and, hopefully, one which will attract a truly global audience. Register for the event via the link below, after which you will receive an email invitation to join the Zoom meeting.
