About the event

Poet in the City's Stone Circles Drop-In, Waterstones, Picadilly. Do the mid-winter mists evoke something ancient in our busy modern landscapes? In Neolithic Britain people wrought talismen from the mountainsides and dragged them into shapes that would stand the test of time. We live alongside their legacy, surrounded by the circles of our own pagan roots. Perhaps today our rituals are more digital than stone; maybe we have created coping mechanisms online rather than in nature. Either way, the pull of the wider world endures. You are invited to attend, and to read their favorite poems or poems they have written themselves, exploring the theme. The drop-in will be hosted by Poet in the City’s acclaimed poet in residence, John Mole. Free event. For more information or to RSVP visit: or email:
