A summer's evening of inspirational poetry and song in Red Cross Garden - hosted by John Constable (aka John Crow, author of The Southwark Mysteries) with guest poets Liza Hayden, Niall McDevitt, Christopher Twigg - and YOU!
Red Cross Cottages were built by Octavia Hill to improve the lives of the poor in what were then London's most deprived and violent slums. The cottages form a stunning backdrop to these beautiful Victorian gardens in the heart of the city. The gardens were recently restored by BOST, complete with pond and fountain.
Southwark poet John Constable will perform his own work inspired by the history of the area, along with leading exponents of visionary poetry and song. Together they will reclaim St George, celebrating Southwark's multicultural heritage. Audience members will also be invited to perform their own poems.
