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 September we are delighted to welcome Tony Strong, AKA J P Delanay who will be talking about his latest books and the genre of Psychological Thrillers.
