First Event of 2021!

On Sunday 10th January, at 6.45pm, Stanza 2 poets Caroline Houlston-Jackson, Bill Jenkinson and Carl Tomlinson will be joining the Barnes and Hardy Societies in a celebration of the work of William Barnes and Thomas Hardy, to be hosted, thanks to Mike Hobbs and the Beckley & Area Community Benefit Society, on the Abingdon Arms’ Zoom site:

Taking us through the seasons, readers and musicians from Dorset will perform poems and prose by Barnes and Hardy, including Barnes’ well-known ‘Linden Lea’ – which was set to music by Ralph Vaughan Williams. In addition, Oxfordshire poets will read their own poems, inspired by Barnes, Hardy and the seasons.
