Join us for a gathering to 'mark' the life of William Blake

Arbonauts at the Grave
We gather at Bunhill Fields at noon to mark the life of William Blake
who died on Sunday 12 August 1827. By tradition people often read
or share a favourite text.

Afterwards you are invited to repair to a local pub for lunch.

This year we will be joined by Arbonauts who are a site-specific
performance collective.

Intimacy with nature and the metaphysical act within their installations. Arbonauts recently created Aria Arboria - a cantata inspired by William Blake’s poem Love and Harmony.

Their reflection on the hallowed dissenters will echo through the 1000 year history of Bunhill Fields.

Join us - all welcome.

    This will be my 2nd visit to Bunhill Fields(the first was 4 years ago). Funny how London graveyards & cemeteries are such joyous places.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
