The Owl and the Pussy-cat at 150 in St Leonards-on-Sea

2021 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussy-cat” and St Leonards-on-Sea devotes its A Town Explores a Book festival, 1-18 April 2021, to Nonsense Songs, Stories, Botany and Alphabets, the book in which the poem was first collected.

They have launched a Crowdfunder which ends on 1 October (National Poetry Day) and still need to collect about £2,000 in the next two days. So please help them reach their target, and then visit the town, where Lear stayed for long periods to paint.
