As a Halloween treat, The Poetry Hour has released the Mayfair & St James’s Literary Festival reading of Christina Rossetti’s famous poem

Flashback to last year’s Mayfair & St James’s Literary Festival, when, ‘On All Hallows’ Eve…in the silence of the night”, The Poetry Hour presented the brilliant Elizabeth McGovern, Poppy Miller and Harriet Walter reading the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and Christina Rossetti at The London Library, with the wonderful Nichola McAuliffe reading Josephine Hart’s introduction.

As a special Halloween treat, The Poetry Hour is releasing their recording of Rossetti’s ‘Goblin Market’ from the event, which you can listen to here.

While we are sad the festival isn’t happening this year, Mayfair Times and The Poetry Hour are looking forward to welcoming you back in 2021 – a year that marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Josephine Hart, founder of The Poetry Hour. We have some very special events planned, so watch this space…
