New Hope runs poetry sessions each week at its Community Market Garden site in West Watford. Sessions alternate between reading, listening to and discussing poetry as well as writing your own poetry. There is no pressure to share your work.

The Community Market Garden is also available as a peaceful space for individuals to engage in their own creative writing projects.

Keep an eye on this page for ‘pop-up’ workshops and follow the instructions on how to join.

If you would like to join us – either for a one-off workshop or on a regular basis – please complete the form that's on this page.

Opening times: Mon – Thurs 10am to 3pm

Entrance to garden is through the gate between 62-64 Rickmansworth Road, WD17 7JA.

This resource is primarily for those who are experiencing, or have experienced, homelessness and who are in the Watford area.
