Annie Freud, great granddaughter of Sigmund gives poetry reading at Deal Town Hall

By Beth Robson

Everyone has heard of Sigmund Freud, nearly everyone has heard of Clement Freud, just about every artist and art lover has heard of Lucian Freud, so tomorrow’s visit by Annie Freud is a rare treat.

The poet is giving a reading at a poetry and art event at Deal Town Hall starting at 7pm.

There will be large original paintings exhibited by Penny Bearman with paintings by the late Martin Aynescomb who is well known for his huge panoramas of Dover Castle and Deal Pier.

Wine and special food will accompany the evening.

Annie Freud is an outspoken poet, with a dramatic style and sometimes shocking subject matter. The evening promises to be riveting and entertaining!

The evening is the brain-child of Nicholas Martine who runs Milestone House, a care home, in Deal.

It will raise funds for the Huntington’s disease association, a charity very close to his heart.

Mr Martine is involved in caring for people with disabilities, but once ran a gallery in the King’s Road in London, and is enthusiastic to connect his interest in art with this fund-raising project.

The event was co-organised with the help of Mrs Bearman and her husband Gerry, who both own and run the new Seaward Gallery in Broad Street.

Tickets are available from Deal Town Hall, High Street, Deal, and the Seaward Gallery and cost £12. They are also available on the door.
