AbouT Tuesdays With The Bard @ Urban Solace

Tuesdays with the Bard @ Urban Solace is featured in the Limca Book of Records 2016 as the Longest Running Poetry Event in India.

Over the last 288 Weeks “Tuesdays with the Bard @ Urban Solace” poets have wrung tears of joy, nods of recognition, fleeting smiles, happy applause, wistful memories ... and several unforgettable poems.


In our 290th Edition of "Tuesdays with the Bard @ Urban Solace" a special evening of poetry dedicated to a former teacher from Bangalore.

Why Teacher my, Teacher!

Allen Wood was considered to be a very special person and teacher by the students of The Frank Anthony Public School, Bangalore.

As a teacher of English, Mr. Wood achieved the now rare distinction of getting his students to fall in love with the English language, more specifically with English Poetry... bringing to life the words of the great masters of English poetry in every class.

This special evening of poetry is the result of a deep sense of gratitude that his former students have for him and is an acknowledgment of the contribution that he has made to their lives. The evening is the collective effort and testimony to his role as a teacher and will comprise the recitation of 5 poems that he taught with passion and love by his former students.
