On November 2 2016 we celebrated our 50th anniversary with colleagues, BCFA members and invited guests. We held our Annual General Meeting which was followed by an interesting poetry session facilitated by Will Kemp of the Arts Department. We had as our invited poets Inua Ellams, Mimi Khalvati, and David Harsent
Mimi, David and Inua each read an original Shakespeare sonnet and their own response to it. This was followed by a lively discussion on its influence on them with the audience posing questions to them. They also performed extracts from their own work.
The evening was rounded off with a short speech by the Chief Operating Officer Adrian Greer who thanked staff that have returned to the UK for their service and the BCFA for making the evening a success. This was followed by the canapé reception. Below are some pictures from the evening.
