Remebrances, a show celebrating poets in the Slad valley, comes to the Lansdown Hall in Stroud on May 13.
It features the work of poets Michael and Frances Horovitz, who spent an intense nine years living and writing in the valley, and poems by Adam Horovitz that look back on that time and on his parents’ relationship.
The Horovitz family arrived in the valley in 1971, wooed by the promise of a “cottage in the country, going for a song” in an advert in the Evening Standard . It turned out to be just two miles from Laurie Lee’s house, who they knew from the poetry scene in London, and a mile from the house of Diana Lodge, a friend who they’d stayed with several times.
Remembrances takes place at Lansdown Hall & Gallery, Stroud, on Saturday May 13th at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm and tickets, at £10 or £8 concessions, are available in advance here ( https://www.adamhorovitz.co.uk/tickets ) or on the door.
