From WhatsonStage:

A drama about the love life of its most famous resident. Adapted from the letters and poetry of John Keats, Keats in Hampstead tells the story of the Romantic poet's love affair with his neighbour Fanny Brawne. The show takes place in the garden and audience members are encouraged to bring picnics. Included in the ticket price is entrance to the Keats House museum, which features relics, letters, books and manuscripts. This event takes place in Keats House, Hampstead

And from TheLondonPaper

Keats In Hampstead at Keats House runs from Friday, 24th July to Friday, 7th August at From Jul 24, Fri&Sat 6pm, mats Sat&Sun 3pm, ends Aug 7

Pricing: £7, concs £5, incl admission to Keats House Museum

Thought that might be of interest to people in London.

The BBC's Poetry Season may be over, but you can still vote for your favourite poet on their website. I would have voted for Shelley, but bizzarely, he isn't there. I was almost tempted to email them and ask why not. Byron, Keats, Wordsworth, Coleridge and Blake are all there, but no Shelley! Does anyone else think it's strange?

At least the Romantics get some representation. Where the hell is Chaucer? The non-inclusion of any early modern drama---much of which was written in blank verse---also seems pretty dodgy.
