Poetry in Rowallane Garden, Saintfield, County Down
Every now and then I get the opportunity to spread my creative writing wings, but this event is an absolute first for me. The National Trust is celebrating what would have been Hugh Armytage Moore’s 150th birthday and have asked me to write four bespoke poems for the occasion. At these two events I will be reading these poems in the magnificent Rowallane Garden.
Using poetry and being in the great outdoors really helps me to maintain (and enhance!) my own recovery journey. I cordially invite you along for the very fact that being out in nature, immersed in art, can give you the wellbeing boost you may need. It’s the perfect environment for all the family.
I am humbled by and deeply appreciate the support I got for this project from musicians Eileen and David of Celtic Grace™.
From Birth to Blossom – Poetry and Music
On St Patrick’s Day, Friday 17th March at 14:00 – 16:00: I will be accompanied by Celtic Grace™ to paint a picture of Rowallane Garden through poetry, taking you on a musical journey arranged on flute and harp.
From Birth to Blossom – Poetry in the Garden
On 24th March at 11:30 – 12:30: Walk with us amongst blossom, blooms and signs of warmer weather and experience these poems in the heart of the setting from which they were inspired.
