Poetry in the House & Talks
Our atmospheric Lower Gallery is the perfect place to sit back, relax and absorb some magical poetry. Member of the board of The Poetry Society, Shanta Acharya, programmes our poetry events and welcomes renowned international and local poets to showcase their work. Recent visitors include such luminaries as Ruth Padel, Peter Porter and Peter Abbs. Although we don’t run open-mike sessions, General Manager Katherine Ives welcomes enquiries from any poets interested in reading their work.
