When: 10.07.2019 to 12.07.2019
Lecturer and poet Neil Rollinson will be Places of Poetry’s poet-in-residence at the Roman Baths in Bath (Wednesday 10th - Friday 13th July). Entering the Baths is like stepping back in time. Mist hovers above the hot water; honey coloured columns surround the bath – if it wasn’t for the electric lights you might have slipped back 1600 years.
Neil will be running workshops for the community using artefacts of the museum as inspiration. Keep an eye of this website for dates and times.
