Poems for Grenfell

Bear witness to the human cost of last year’s devastating fire at Grenfell at a poetry reading by contributors to new anthology Poems for Grenfell Tower.

At this event, poets Steve Griffiths, Rip Bulkeley, Rachel Burns, Angela Topping, Kevin Higgins and Myra Schneider read their own contributions and others from this groundbreaking anthology, published by Onslaught Press.

Alemu Tebeje, chair of the Ethiopian Community of Britain, who lives on Lancaster West Estate within 200 yards of Grenfell Tower, also joins the panel to read his poem which mourns the loss of so many neighbours.
