The William Blake Congregation consists of an informal, open and egalitarian network of creative people united by their love for William Blake. The Congregation, founded by the late Simon Miles, poet, in 1986, annually celebrates Blake’s life and work on his birthday, 28th November, at Tate Britain, 1pm, and at his grave on 12th August. Open to all. All are welcome to bring a poem or song to share.
