London Irish LGBT: Poets, Priests, Druids and Beandraoíthe

London Irish LGBT: Poets, Priests, Druids and Beandraoíthe

The London Irish LGBT present their first poetry evening at the London Irish Centre, with special guests

“The Cauldron, or in Christian terms, the Grail, is a central recurring motif in Celtic Mythology: the vessel is a symbol of the inexhaustible resources of the spirit, forever renewing itself, whether it be the hidden spirit that animates all matter, or, in psychological terms, an energy in the depths of the mind that, if developed, can free us from dependence on the body and the tyranny of historical fact.

“Introduced by His Excellency the Irish Ambassador and with poetry from Yeats to Heaney to Eaven Boland, together with poets Maureen Duffy and Cat Brogan and others, we will take on a mystical journey, forcing us, like those ancient Celtic faces carved in stone, to look backwards and forwards at the same time as we discover anew that between life and death there is no between.”

Wednesday, 3 February 2016 from 19:00 to 21:00
The London Irish Centre – 50-52 Camden Square London NW1 9XB GB

About the Camden LGBT Forum:

Organiser of London Irish LGBT Network: Poets, Priests, Druids and Beandraoíthe

Camden LGBT Forum is run by LGBT people for LGBT people.

We’re here to make sure that the rights and interests of all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people living or working in Camden are represented.

We tackle discrimination and we promote equality and diversity.

We do this by our work in schools, by running an amazing LGBT History Month every year, by our programme against hate crime and by standing as your advocate.
