We meet in Henleaze. The house is a bungalow. There is easy street parking nearby. Buses 2 and 2a along Henleaze Road and 505 along Kellaway Avenue have stops a few minutes walk away.

We read and discuss poetry, mainly of the 20th and 21st centuries, typically taking it in turns to choose poets to consider for the next few meetings. At a meeting, we take turns to read poems, and all join in the discussion. We are enthusiasts rather than experts! We have recently considered poems by Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, T.S.Eliot (4 Quartets), G.M.Hopkins and e e Cummings.
