A film of the IsamBards poetry-walking Arnos Vale Cemetery

Way back when - ie March 2020, before the lockdown - the IsamBards - that's David Johnson, Pameli Benham, Dominic Fisher and I - did a poetry walk around Bristol's beautiful and ever so slightly macabre Arnos Vale Garden Cemetery, with Janine Marriott our expert guide.

We had a great time and were hopeful of repeating the event on midsummer's day. Alas, the cemetery is now closed in the hope of protecting the dead - and living visitors too, of course - but nevertheless, we'll be back once it's safe to resume our bardic ways. In the meantime, please enjoy this short film by Diana Taylor which gives a flavour of the experience.
