Award-winning poet Ruth Padel has written a  poem in the tradition of Charles Dickens and Dylan Thomas, a poem which takes us on a journey to the heart of Christmas. Ruth will be joined by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, himself a distinguished poet; the two of them will,  in conversation and through readings of their own poetry, seek to  uncover the motifs and history of Christmas, and suggest what it might mean to us today. A perfect beginning to the festive season!


Please note, the venue has changed for this event! It will now take place at The Chapel,BishopWoodford House, Barton Road.
