Local people are reading poetry (their own, or that of others), between 2pm and 4pm on the two Sundays of the Leytonstone Arts Trail (8th and 15th July).

If the weather is fine we might read under a gazebo; if not we will be in the ‘social room’. Please aim to read for about 5 minutes. There will be a parallel visual arts exhibition, including sculptures in our burial ground, which we hope you will enjoy.

The venue is Wanstead Friends Meeting House (Bush Road, E11 3AU). Map.

If you would like to read, or have any queries, please get in touch: Chris Lord,, 07545 378553.

And thanks! Looking forward to it.
