About

Join award-winning poet and PhD student Linda France for an exclusive reading of ‘Portrait of an Artist as an Island Flower’ – a poem inspired by Margaret Rebecca Dickinson’s 1874 expedition to Holy Island, where she added a number of new flowers to her botanical collection. 

Also, an opportunity to see Margaret’s original artwork.  It believed that no portrait of Margaret Dickinson exists in the present day, thus Linda’s reading provides the perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with a true pioneer of North-East botany, and botanical art. 

Booking essential via NHSN on 0191 208 2790.
