A Joy [is still] Forever

flowersMore Keatsing, this time florally, for his house festival in June …

A Joy Forever: afternoon tea in the company of John Keats, with poets Julia Bird and Mike Sims. 2pm, Sunday 7 June

‘White hawthorn, and the pastoral eglantine … fast-fading violets … the coming musk-rose’ is the tussie-mussie arranged by Keats in his Ode to a Nightingale, tussie-mussie being the Georgian term for a posy of flowers. Keats’ thoughts and feelings about flowers are the starting points for an afternoon picnic combining performances of his poems and letters, games, gifts and tea. Price includes light refreshments.

Tickets from here eventually (not on sale at the time o’ posting).
