Next  Event Stephen Watts will be our guest                    on Monday 6 May, 7.00-9.00 pm                A Hawthornden Fellow in 1993, Stephen has twice come second in the National Poetry Competition. After 3 years in the Outer Hebrides where I made a choice to be a poet’, he discovered Whitechapel where he is inspired by ‘the tremendous range of human presence’. And I think – we need such a change, my city and I, that may be conjured in   us that dream birth of compassion with    reason & energy merged in slow dance. Watts features in Iain Sinclair’s The Last London (2017), which describes his friendship with the late W.G. Sebald as well as with the author.
