Coventry poet, Antony Owen, is leading a voluntary peace poetry vigil for victims of confliict. ‘Bridges over the wall” will consist of bridging poetry and spoken word, for those without a voice, from places of conflict across the world. The event will also bridge conflicts past and present, those affected from the bombings of places like Coventry, Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki and in recent conflicts in Syria and Yemen.
The event will include poems read by local poets, students from Cardinal Newman School, refugees and Owen himself.
Everyone is welcome to come, to listen and to light a candle for peace.
