 We will be repeating the programme at the church of St Mary's, Great Witcombe, Gloucestershire, at the slightly later time of 7.30pm the following evening, Thursday 7 March.  Refreshments will be served at the end of the evening, and a retiring collection will be made.

Come and hear poetry from the past 5 centuries on themes of looking for hope and acceptance during times of uncertainty and doubt. After a musical interlude, poets from Cheltenham Poetry Society will read their own work on similar themes.
