Due to the popularity of the WLBC’s Poetry Evening recently, we are inviting you all once more to our Precious Jewel fundraising finale on Friday 12 March, 7-9.30pm! There will be storytelling from Padmamati (Stephen Coates), music and words from Jonathan Cohen and a reading of poetic extracts from the writings of Jinananda – and much more!
