Catch Leena Batchelor performing in one of the few LIVE events to take place since March, this week at The Commandery in Worcester.


30 Dec 2020 


11:00 am – 11:45 am

Join our Poet in Residence for a morning of Festive Tales and Poetry in our beautiful herb garden.

The pieces will all be brand new and written specially for the Commandery.

Speaking of the opportunity to collaborate with The Commandery as their Poet in Residence from 2020, Leena says
‘As a lover of history, the chance to explore the layers of lives that have walked among the walls of this beautiful building is a dream come true. I am honoured to be The Commandery’s first Poet in Residence, and am excited beyond belief to be able to present these stories to visitors through both written and spoken word!’

This is a free event but museum admission applies. The event may be postponed in particularly bad weather.
