Literary Events at The Abingdon Arms 7pm 7th October

We are pleased to announce the introduction of some literary events at the Abingdon Arms from January 2018.  Beckley and the surrounding area has long attracted and inspired creative people from far and wide and the Abingdon Arms itself has been the haunt of some illustrious artists, authors and poets over the years.   In October we are delighted to welcome Stanza 2 Poetry Group, hosting a session entitled ‘Change’.  Local poets are invited to read their own or others’ poems on the theme of Change.  The session will be curated by Dorothy McCarthy.
