I’m feeling really privileged to be able to share, in poetry, some of the stories in the life of Jane Pugin, the brave and charismatic widow of Augustus Pugin – from the young bride ‘Down from London’ and full of hope, to the Pugin family matriarch and pillar of the local community that she became in old age … this ‘Grand Old Lady of Ramsgate’.
So, 170 years after Jane’s first meeting with Augustus, I’ll be at The Tom Thumb Theatre, Margate, on the 20th June, bringing back to life some of what is known about Jane. I’ll be joined by five other talented and entertaining poets, all with their stories to tell, in poetry. Do join us … I hope to see you there. 🙂
