The Evesham Cafe Collection

Evesham Festival of Words photographer, Angela Fitch, and I have joined forces to produce a book of poems, recipes and images featuring some of the beautiful cafes in Evesham.

The work has involved visits to the various cafes (and drinking coffee and eating loads of cake), meeting the lovely owners and – in my case – being inspired to write a poem about the experience.

We unfortunately couldn’t fit everyone into this book – but if this one sells there will be scope to do another one next year. Copies are on sale at The Almonry Tourist Information Centre, Evesham, Jellypicklejam café, Brew Bear café  and other featured cafes. You can also order a copy from me by emailing sue.r.johnson@outlook.com
