In May each year we meet to select our chosen poets for the next session. Six of our meetings concern the life, times and work of the selected poets. Two meetings take the form of a group choice of topic, for instance, the Seasons, Cities or Friendship.

Selected poets this session are Andrew Marvell, Imtiaz Dharker and Liz Lochhead, Walter de la Mare, Helen Dunmore and Elizabeth Jennings. Anne Connolly, Edinburgh poet, is invited to conclude our programme.
The Group Choices are Distant Lands and Poets in Translation. Each meeting is taken by a different member.

The last half hour takes the form of ‘Poetry Please’, when each member brings a poem which may be an old favourite, or something quite new, and says a sentence about what appeals in the poem or what informed its selection.
In recent years we have invited a Perthshire poet to lead a meeting or a person with particular knowledge of the poetry of a region or country.
