A rare opportunity to experience a variety of verse inside the Elizabethan wonders of Barrow Court Hall.

Actor John Telfer, who plays vicar Alan Franks in The Archers, will read your requested poems and introduce our three guest poets:

Marchant Barron, an exceptional talent who has appeared on the BBC's Autumnwatch featuring his installation in the Autumn Trail at Westonbirt Arboretum;

The entertaining Camilla McLean, recently Stamford's Poet Laureate.

Barrow Court resident Jonathan Bradley, whose delightful book Papiliones is a volume of verse inspired by his love and passion for butterflies.

There will also be specially commissioned poems reflecting the beautiful and unique place that is Barrow Court.
