Poems presented:


We drove up from London in a rented yellow minibus, like the Partridge family. Many of us were meeting for the first time, and we enjoyed each other's company and had fun doing the tour of the abbey. One comment, though: in Lord Byron's bedroom - instead of all these pointless knick-knacks, why not have a waxwork of His Lordship doing the twin-backed beast with a serving maid? This would give it an authentic Regency flavour.
