We are a lively group who very much enjoy our meetings, taking it in turns to lead on a chosen poet or theme. Everyone is encouraged to contribute. Our schedule reflects the classics through to contemporary writers, and this year's programme can be seen by clicking on the link 2020 Programme on the right.

We started with the theme of Journeys, whether through life, transport, travel or imagination, then a wonderful session on Seamus Heaney, listening to recordings of him reading his own work.

In March we explored the work of two French poets, Rimbaud and Verlaine, mostly in translation but some original texts, who despite their reputation as enfants terribles were hugely influential in modern literature.

For the moment we have had to suspend our meetings due to the virus. As soon as we have news of being able to resume we will let you know.
