Winter Gifts with Anthony Capildeo
December 6 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm£10
The seasons are turning, and together we’ll settle down into a winter Cornwall of the mind. What tales will we enjoy at the bright fireside? What gifts will accompany us home, through the cold and dark? The 6th of December marks the Feast of St Nicholas, patron saint of children and sailors, and origin of our ‘Santa Claus’. Charles Causley brought his generous gift of creativity to his whole life, from music in schoolrooms to adventure on the high seas. Causley’s fondness for this December season, when at the low point of the Old Year we journey towards the New, also expressed itself in his verse play, The GIft of a Lamb…much overdue a community revival. At the Causley Trust, we believe in the life-giving spirit that the arts can breathe into communities. Anthony Vahni Capildeo will read a selection of Causley’s poems, their own work, and other tales of unexpected gifts, small and tender creatures, and haunting winter. We’ll stop to share stories and reflect on what we’re hearing. We’ll leave nourished and warmed.
Join us on Zoom on Wednesday 6th of December at 7pm.
