Autumn at The Movement

With the damp of autumn making itself felt, and the chill of winter in the air, evening events at The Movement have been mostly curtailed until we have some shelter and warmth to offer.

Having said that, hardy folks who keep an eye on this website and our Facebook and twitter feed, will find that the occasional poetry or acoustic evening is still taking place. The poetry planned for 21st November has unfortunately been postponed due to cold nights at The Movement. Sorry for any inconvenience.
