Stanza Bonanza: Brixton v Palmers Green

Wednesday 2 November 2016, 7:30 pm9:30 pm

St Giles Church

capture

Another lovely evening of poetry from two of The Poetry Society’s Stanzas.

While the Poetry Cafe is closed for refurbishment, the venue is St Giles-in-the-Fields, 60 St Giles High Street, London, WC2H 8LG – just a very short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube. St Giles is known as ‘The Poets’ Church’. Poet John Milton’s daughter Mary was baptised in the Gothic brick building in 1647. Two memorials inside the church commemorate George Chapman, the translator of Homer (buried outside) and politician and poet Andrew Marvell.

Entry by donation, no need to book, and everyone very welcome – the more the merrier.
