LGBT Poetry Weekend
10-11 June 2017
LGBT Poet Laureate, Trudy Howson, will be reciting a number of her poems, some written for Smallhythe Place to celebrate its LGBT history. There will also be talks in the Barn Theatre.
Fifty years after the partial decriminalization of homosexuality in England, Smallhythe Place will be exploring its own LGBT history, namely Edy Craig and her circle of queer friends.
Trudy Howson and our House Steward, Susannah Mayor, will be discussing the lives of the influential men and women who visited and lived at Smallhythe Place, and how their sexuality impacted their work.
This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.
