Local poet Fiona Ritchie Walker, who shared a selection of her writing at our poetry evening in January, is hosting a Poetry and Wrapbag evening next month.

Date: Monday 3rd December
Time: 7pm
Venue: Lit and Phil, 23 Westgate Road, NE1 1SE

Hosted by Red Squirrel Press and Fiona Ritchie Walker

An evening of poetry with the chance to buy a wrapbag in aid of the Lit and Phil Development Fund and SunCatchers, which is providing solar ovens for women in Tanzania and Kenya.

Giving a book this Christmas? Give it in a wrapbag, a re-usable knitted bag that comes with its own history, re-usable card – and a poem! This fundraising event has grown from Fiona’s personal quest to stop buying giftwrap and her wrapbags have now been sent and received all over the world. Some of the poets who have contributed poems for the project will be reading at this event.

Refreshments served. No charge but donations welcome. 

Suggested minimum donation of £15 for a wrapbag, to be divided between the Development Fund and SunCatchers.
