  • Wilfred Owen Festival

    Wednesday, 31st October 2018 at 10am - 6pm Tuesday, 13th November
    Location: Various venues and locations in Oswestry - base will be Oswestry Memorial Hall, SY11 2EG

    Event Details

    The Wilfred Owen Festival is a festival of commemoration and remembrance taking place in the town of Oswestry, Shropshire. The festival will run through September, October and into November 2018 with the main focal point for events being from October 31st to November 13th. It is a festival designed to coincide with the centenary of Wilfred Owen’s death and the centenary of Armistice Day and will be a unique and fitting tribute to Owen in the town of his birth and to all those who sacrificed their lives for us during times of conflict.

    A wide range of events and performances will be taking place throughout the period and will include Poetry, Drama, Music, Lectures, Re-enactment, Films, An Artist’s Trail, Exhibitions and much more! Follow this link - - (please bear in mind this is work in progress - please check regularly for new events being added)

    There will also be the unveiling of a new life size Bronze statue of Wilfred Owen commissioned by Oswestry Town Council. The statue is the work of local sculptor and artist Tim Turner and will be cast at the Castle Fine Arts Foundry in near-bye Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant.

    A small committee of local people with a wide range of skill sets is in place to oversee the organisation of the festival and members of the committee are always willing to listen to ideas from anyone who feels they have something to add or would like to participate in some way in the festival. We are also currently seeking potential sponsors for the series of events taking place, a list of which can be found under the Events section of this website. For more information please contact
