Poetry Reading & Listening

This is for poetry lovers. Like music, there is an ocean of poetry to delve into, with a myriad of different streams.


The group was established for those wishing to seek out and enjoy much loved poems and new. Perhaps just a line or two of verse may prick the mind and evoke memories of school, friends or loved ones.


At each meeting, members bring along poems they have sought out under a chosen topic. By doing this, we are digging up some less well known, interesting and enjoyable poems. These are read out, and sometimes discussed. We also share old favourites and it’s very interesting hearing what they mean to the members and why they were chosen.


The group is full, but a new group could be established.
