A collection of poems inspired by a famous Edmonton poet will go on display this autumn.

Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness, by Edmonton poet John Keats, will be on show at Forty Hall between September 2 and September 28.

Enfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for culture, Councillor Rohini Simbodyal, said: “This exhibition will be a great start to autumn and give residents the opportunity to explore art in an alternative way. This exhibition will be a delightful experience that shouldn’t be missed.”

Why is Keats work not being displayed and showcased in Edmonton? It would seem that Enfield council like to claim all of the positive parts of Edmontons history as collective achievement of the whole borough, while letting Edmonton itself decline into a sad bland shadow of its former self.
After all, where could we showcase it? In one of our fine theatres or civic buildings? No they've all been demolished! Perhaps we could hang Keats work from what's left of our town hall? The clock opposite Asda.

I see it's been amended now on the main News page but the email was sent and so cannot be amended.

To Edmontons Heritage, Keats not only lived in Edmonton, where he was apprentice to a doctor in Church Street, but had earlier attended a boarding school in Enfield, so actually lived in Enfield before his move to Edmonton. Additionally, he didn't start writing seriously till he'd left Edmonton!

Agree re Edmonton - I was witness to the destruction of all the historic buildings around Edmonton Green (and there was a 'Green' though by then hedged in) as I grew up, which were replaced with the soulless concrete monstrosity.
