As part of the gallery's new workshop and events programme, a 5 week haiku course has been running at Quest Gallery.  For the last few weeks, over 15 participants have been creating their own haiku in response to the gallery's changing exhibition programme.

In celebration of this and to continue to bring together these very different but complementary art forms, Quest Gallery invite you to An Evening of Haiku on Wed 27 June to take place at The Royal Crescent Hotel after their private view.

There will be guest speakers, celebrated poet and author, Tom Lowenstein and award winning Japan Times writer, Alan Summers, as well as the opportunity to hear the participants perform their own poetry.

Tickets are £10 each

There will be Through a Glass Darkly art gallery catalogues with haiku available on the night, which make great souvenirs of what promises to be an amazing insight into haiku poetry.

To book for the special event at the Royal Crescent Hotel please contact Sarah Jenkins:
