Bankside Poetry Festival

We were delighted to have sponsored the Bankside Poetry Festival last week which saw three well-known poets marking the great creative surge of the famous Romantic poet and physician, John Keats, in his final years.

Hosted across two evenings, Europe’s oldest surviving Operating Theatre in London welcomed over 110 attendees to watch the thought-provoking and inspiring performances in an amazing historical setting.

Highlights included Matt Harvey’s riotous ‘Wimbledon Tennis’ poem, The Fire Poet’s freestyle poem from words chosen by the audience, and Adisa the Verbaliser’s ‘All Join In’ poem. The event raised over £1,000, with all proceeds going towards The Charles Dickens School, Bankside.

Charlie Scott, Waterman Structures Director and a passionate initiator behind the Bankside Poetry Festival, commented; “We are very proud to have supported this festival in memory of John Keats. This was a wonderful opportunity to get together and enjoy some of our well-known Poets and creative artists for an inspiring evening.”
