Nonsuch in Poetry

On 21st June 2016 at 7.30pm a presentation will take place in the Service Wing Stable of new poetry about Nonsuch. Award winning local poet, Bernard Jacobs will tell us about his new anthology. Each poem is based on an aspect of the history of Nonsuch – Henry VIII, Barbara Villiers, the Palace, the Stained Glass and Nonsuch Park during World War II and, more recently, Prof. Biddles’ excavation in 1959.

Bernard Jacobs The Nonsuch Poems

Bernard and some friends will read a selection of them, some accompanied by music, with an explanation being given about the reason for each poem. Some are gentle, some funny, others serious. 

Mr. Jacobs, who lives near to Nonsuch Park, has only recently taken up writing as a hobby and has already received various awards. He has asked if some of the poems can be read with music playing quietly in the background as the poem is read.

The poems have now been published and Mr. Jacobs will sign books after the event. Each books costs just £5.
