The Lady of Shalott is alive and kicking in Whitley Bay

At a previous meeting we had a short discussion around how we can all be a little reticent to read longer poems, which is a bit of a shame as there are some fabulous poems long enough to lose oneself in. Joyce and Tessa took the challenge up and met to acquaint themselves with the delights of Tennyson’s ‘Lady of Shalott’, what a treat.  Arthurian legend swept through Whitley Bay library like never before and it was no mean feat to follow it, but follow it we did with more gems.
