Thanks also to PAC members, Spike the Poet, Bradgate Writers, Westcotes Words, Sound Cafe and to New Walk Museum, and Everybody’s Reading Festival.
The idea for ‘Rights of Passage’ arose from Richard Byrt’s suggestion that we use paintings in the Victorian Gallery (the room where the stage is) as inspiration; and as a second strand to our theme a number of human rights issues that are being marked this year: 70 years since the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and the NHS was founded; 50 years since the death of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy; 100 years since certain women over 30 years were granted the right to vote Women’s suffrage – the Museum is planning an event around this.
We now meet on 1st Thursday of the month, 6.15pm at Duffy’s Bar, Pocklington’s Walk, Leicester. Please feel free to join us.
