to promote a wider and deeper knowledge of the poet, John Clare

A beginner’s guide to John Clare, 28 May 2017

There will be an illustrated talk in St Botolph’s Church in Helpston (near Peterborough) on Sunday 28 May, starting at 2pm, until 4.15pm, with a break for tea and cake.

If you would like to know more about John Clare, our local poet, do come along. Tickets are £5 (to include tea), and can be bought at the door on the day.

Perhaps you would like to have Sunday lunch beforehand at the Bluebell in Helpston (the pub where Clare used to work) and a pint of John Clare ale to end the afternoon!

To book lunch, please telephone the Bluebell direct on 01733 252394. Further information can be obtained from Sue on 01353 668438 or email
