The Westminster Abbey Memorial Service to commemorate the 87th anniversary of Hardy’s death
11.45am Meet at the West door of the Abbey for a short thanksgiving service of poetry and prayers in Poets’ Corner led by Canon Andrew Tremlett, during which a wreath of Stinsford yew will be laid on Hardy’s tomb.
After the service we will be going on to the Guildhall Library, where THS member Jeanie King, will talk to us about the history of this great London library and will have on display archive materials relevant to Hardy's time in London. We may also have the opportunity of going into the medieval Graet Hall (dependent on events there).
