Contact us to book

The theme of National Poetry Day 2017 is ‘freedom’, a word with a very personal meaning to us all.  On this day we encourage you to think about it means to you, and to come and share your thoughts with us at our pop-up café.  It will be an informal occasion to enjoy some lively conversation and share favourite poems with friends over a cup of tea and slice of homemade cake.  Drop in any time during the afternoon.

There will be plenty of tea, home-made cake and lively conversation to enjoy all afternoon – drop in when you are able.  Children are very welcome.
