Poetry in the Garden

September 19, 2023

Celebrate National Poetry Day with a trail of poems around the Butts Community Garden, Walsall, inspired by this year’s theme of Refuge.

As well as poems by nationally-known authors such as Michael Rosen, Shirley Hughes and children’s Poet Laureate, Joseph Coelho, we’ll have poems by members of the recently-formed Butts Writing Group, including a new poem by Walsall-playwright, David Calcutt.

The poems are suitable for all ages, including children, young people and adults. So grab a few minutes of refuge from your everyday and enjoy a few minutes in nature following this trail of poetry.

The poems will be displayed from 3 to 9 October inclusive.
