Lance Pierson’s Poetry Walks

With Summer ending and the thoughts of some already turning to Christmas we’d like you to turn them instead to poetry. Here’s Lance reading the poem “Christmas” by John Betjeman…

Walk leader Lance is also a professional actor who has been performing famous poetry for decades. If you enjoyed that performance of Betjeman’s classic then you will love the walks Lance is leading over the next few weeks. There’s a chance to see where Betjeman grew up and went to school. Or you can discover the rich poetic heritage of the Thames bank with poets from Shakespeare to Wordsworth and Burns to Donne commemorated or inspired there. And finally there’s the chance to learn more about John Milton, the only serious rival to Shakespeare as Britain’s greatest poet. And all of their poems are brought to life by Lance as you’ve just seen…
