A 90 minute walkshop aimed at adults or children over 12 in discovering how ‘Truth’ is commemorated in the City of London, in which you get to compose and recite haiku - 3 lined short poem usually associated with Japanese culture.
Novice or expert, join in this fun walking activity in which you get to compose, write and recite short 3 line poems (known as haiku) and see your work published in a 'zine anthology. Be inspired by the monuments and churches within the City of London, as we go in search of ‘Truth’ - the theme for this year’s National Poetry Day.
Meeting at The Monument (Fish St Hill, London EC3R 8AH), erected to mark the Great Fire of London, around which there were many myths as to how the fire started, we walk past a monument to the Abolition of Slavery, to the Bank of England, where their bond is their word. Our search will end just beyond St Paul’s at the Old Bailey, where ‘Truth and Justice’ are upheld.
