Poetry Appreciation Group

About Garstang Poetry Appreciation Group

The Poetry Appreciation group was started in 2009 following a workshop given by the late James Dodding during the Arts Festival.

Prof James Dodding

James, who died in 2018 was an internationally known stage director and acting coach.

We are a very friendly group with members from all walks of life who enjoy listening to and reading poetry.

We meet on the fourth Friday of each month from 2pm until 4pm. Each session is led by one or more members and anyone, if they wish, can join in or just sit and listen.

The meetings are very relaxed and enjoyable.

The annual programme is available in the Arts Centre & Garstang library
