Bedford: 30 May 2017

Our poetry evening in Bedford last night followed a theme of food. There are endless amounts of poetry written on this theme and I think we had a pretty good variety here dating from the 18th century to modern day, it’s obviously a literary subject that we never grow weary of.

Our next meeting is Tuesday 25th July.
