Go for a walk inspired by ‘The Waste Land’, and discover how T.S. Eliot’s poem resonates with landmarks in Margate.

‘Postcards from The Waste Land’ will connect Eliot’s time of convalescence in Margate and his work on The Waste Land with Margate’s identity as a holiday destination.

Walking with The Waste Land is a community group founded by artist Elspeth (Bilie) Penfold in 2015. The group use walking as research to engage with Eliot’s poem and have made personal connections between readings of the poem, and selected locations in Margate. The group is made up of members from The Waste Land Research group and artists, academics, poets, Eliot enthusiasts and critics from the wider community.

Walks last one and a half hours, and take a variety of formats.

This is an event organised by members of The Waste Land Research Group, who have developed Turner Contemporary's exhibition Journeys with 'The Waste Land'.
