Cemetery poet walk London England 24th June 2012

Something to bring out the goth in us all: the opportunity to meet at the cemetery gates before getting hit by a double decker bus (or not preferably)...

Highgate Cemetery 2pm - 4.30pm £20 (includes entry fee) -quite expensive when compared with what we usually feature here. Poet Ben Rogers walks with the departed in a workshop that responds to, and creates ideas prompted by the atmosphere and stories found within this graveyard. Contact Rochelle@mendham-writers.com to book.


If you can't afford this, try going to your own burial ground for free: I used to favour St Sepulchre's in the Jericho district of Oxford, England. Tucked behind Lucy's factory where the metalwork fires burnt out in the darkness.

'He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife.  Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.' - our old friend Douglas Adams
