Torriano Meeting House

Poetry Art Politics Community 

Torriano Meeting House  is a user-funded grass-roots volunteer-run arts and community organisation in Kentish Town. We are best known for our poetry events but we have many other long running strands including storytelling for adults, writing and storytelling workshops, hosting local political campaigning groups, theatrical events, left wing folk club, and we very much support grass-roots creativity and social change.  

Torriano is a space for you to organise events and projects.

“What is the purpose of resisting corporate globalization if not to protect the obscure, the ineffable, the unmarketable, the unmanageable, the local, the poetic and the eccentric? So they need to be practiced, celebrated and studied too, right now.” – Rebecca Solnit
 

We are making preparations for safely coming together again.
Autumn brings stirrings of new growth in a topsy turvey world. 
Our capacity audience is 8 people. Please bring a mask to events.

We will be beginning in-person readings at Torriano Meeting House on Sunday October 24th, when the guest readers will be Rosemary Norman and Thomas McColl. Readings will then take place every Sunday at 7.30pm until mid-December. 

 As Torriano is a small venue we will initially be limiting the audience to around 20. Please sign up via Eventbrite for the reading(s) that you are planning to attend. There is an option to either pay via Eventbrite or to pay in cash on the door. If you are planning to pay on the door please still sign up so we know that you are planning to attend. 

We understand that not everyone will currently feel comfortable and/or be in a position to attend in-person readings so Torriano in Cyberspace will also continue via Zoom (and details are below).  

Despite the ongoing challenges, I’m really looking forward to seeing you soon.

Torriano Fun Palace

Saturday 2 October noon until 6pm.

Big fun, small space, the universe in a grain of sand. In past years we have celebrated the Russian revolution; built a time machine; explored the cutting edge of architecture; there has always been and will always be orange peel sculpting, dramatic interludes, making things, science experiments, important conversations and a tea urn.
