Event description
As part of Oxfordshire Green Week, we will experience The Abbey's gardens in poetry with Barbara Vellacott.

About this event

English poetry is rich in images of gardens and their associations – bodily, emotional and spiritual. Why do we love gardens? What do they mean to us? The mediaeval paradise garden, the garden in the desert, the wild garden, the garden of love, and so on, are some of the most beautiful of human creations over the centuries. We shall find the variety of the Abbey grounds, with the old courtyard garden, lawns and magnificent trees, walled garden, and fruit trees can mirror our readings and inspire our hearts.
