Forthcoming Events Autumn 2022 Meetings start at 7.30pm
Change of Venue
The Village Café (address – The Old Coach Yard, East Coker, BA22 9HY) will be our venue for the meeting on 24th September. We hope this will become our new permanent venue, but do check our website (www.eastcokerpoetry.org.uk) before future meetings.
I have attached a map for those not familiar with the village.
We thank Patrick and Claire at the Helyar Arms for letting us use the Apple Loft during the last four years, but we have all agreed that a new venue is needed. Recent changes in the Apple Loft have meant that the seating is restricted and much less flexible, making it difficult to accommodate the number of people who come to our meetings. Some difficulties have also arisen due to the limited car parking available.
The Village Café in East Coker is an excellent venue with ample seating, a lovely ambience and good location near the school. The café is licensed and so a glass of wine or pint of ale can still accompany the poetry! The doors will be open for us from 7.00pm.
There is parking space available in the car park behind the café as this is not used by the other business users in the evening. Extra parking is always available in the road outside the café.
