Event To Celebrate WB Yeats’s Poetry in Aid of Creative Cricklewood and Friends of Cricklewood Library


As part of the #Yeats2015 celebration, the Irish community in London will gather at the London Irish Centre in Camden on August 20th 2015, to celebrate theDominic West poetry of WB Yeats and raise funds for Creative Cricklewood (CC) and Friends of Cricklewood Library (FOCL).

The theme of the event, brainchild of CC Chair, Orna Ross will centre on the question of what it means to be Irish, especially when one lives away from Ireland.

 “I Am Of Ireland” is being organised by Orna Ross in partnership with Gary Dunne, Arts Officer at The London Irish Centre, which will be the venue for the evening, and with some support from the Irish Minister for Diaspora Affairs, who will also take part in the event.

It will feature performances by writers, artists and musicians whose life or work has been inspired by Yeats’s poetry. Confirmed readers in addition to the Minister are Dan Mulhall, Ireland’s Ambassador to the UK and actor Dominic West.

Yeats was a long-time Londoner and, more than any other writer, established the idea of Ireland as a spirit, an internal condition, an imaginative space. 

Our event will celebrate that concept and, true to the complexity of the poetry, include a wide variety of responses to what it means to be “of Ireland”.

Creative Cricklewood and Friends of Cricklewood Library will display their work in the lobby, for the audience to peruse during the interval.
