The launch of Antony Owen’s Margaret Thatcher’s Museum was held at Coventry’s Inspire Cafe Bar, 11889651_10206411089049876_6030941794628487234_n run by Mick and Martin Leap; a beautifully intimate and atmospheric venue situated at the base of the spire of Christchurch church, which was destroyed during World War II. There was a great crowd to hear Paul and Sarer read. (Neil Sparkes having been summoned to produce a new album by Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali in Los Angeles, literally days before the launch)

Then Antony read from Margaret Thatcher’s Museum with great passion and focus, taking the time to put just enough context to the poems, allowing them to ring. It was a brilliant evening, with a wonderfully engaging audience. We hope to do more gigs at the Inspire Bar Cafe in the near future.
