Location: St Luke’s Hall, St Luke’s Place, Cheltenham, GL53 7HP

Talk by David Elder

Cheltenham has the interesting distinction of being closely associated with not one, but three Poet Laureates: Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809 – 1892), Cecil Day-Lewis (1904–1972) and John Betjeman (1906-1984). David Elder, author of Literary Cheltenham, will tell their remarkable stories, relating each one to the historical context of their times.’
