'William Blake at the Bridge Hotel' Launch Event

7 pm Wednesday 27 October, Bridge Hotel, Newcastle
Culture Matters is proud to announce the publication and launch of William Blake at the Bridge Hotel: Ten Newcastle Poets, edited by Paul Summers. The writers presented are diverse in style but unified by their progressive politics and class.

The anthology is sponsored by UNISON Newcastle city branch and Newcastle Trades Union Council.
