Frogmore looks back over thirty years

Frogmore poets read to a packed house at Needlemakers in Lewes on National Poetry Day (4 October). At an event celebrating the Day itself, Frogmore's 30th year and the publication of Poems from the Old Hill: A Lewes Anthology, and the 80th number of The Frogmore Papers and an appreciative audience listened attentively to Lewes poets Marek Urbanowicz, Julia O'Brien, Robin Houghton and Patrick Bond and special guest Joe Sheerin, who had driven over the Downs from Rottingdean to beguile with his customary Irish wit.
