The Traherne Festival is held each summer in Credenhill (5 miles NW of Hereford), and in Hereford.

October 10

Thomas Traherne, Hereford’s poet priest, was buried on 10 October in 1674 and is celebrated both in the Church of England's calendar and by the annual Jeremy Maule lecture.

Festival 2020 Cancelled

Sadly the 2020 festival has been cancelled. Next year’s festival will run from 5th to 7th June. Further details will be published as they are finalized. We still hope to hold the Jeremy Maule Lecture on Friday 9th October, followed by the Two Thomases Walk on 10th October. Details will be published as things become more certain.
