Details

Alexander Pope is, after William Shakespeare and Alfred Lord Tennyson, the most quoted poet in the English language. As a Catholic he was prohibited to build a home within the City of London and so settled in Twickenham, Middlesex. As well as a poet, Pope was a visionary who, through his friendships with Ralph Allen and William Kent, became a profound influence on English landscape gardening. In partnership with the Arts Council and Pope's Grotto Preservation Trust, award-winning storyteller Giles Abbott has created a piece which brings to life Pope, his grotto, art, ambitions and arguments
