Poetry-walking Arnos Vale Cemetery


The poems are mostly written and tickets are now on sale for the IsamBards poetry walk around Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol on Sunday 8th March at 1.30pm. The event comprises a guided tour around part of the cemetery in the company of guide Janine Marriott, with added site-specific poems, most of which were written especially for the walk and cover all aspects of Death, including Life and Everything Else In Between. They cost £5 and can be bought here.

Meanwhile, a little desultory googling this morning for IsamBards photos for our new Facebook page turned up this article from the Guardian, for which we were photographed at the University of Bristol Botanic Gardens Bee and Pollination Festival at the beginning of last September, but which we missed completely when it was published a couple of weeks later. It was lovely to come across all that summery sunlight and warmth in the middle of darkest greyest winter.
