Royal College Street
Rimbaud and Verlaine
The Foundation was initiated by Poet in the City, which inherited a campaign to create an Anglo-French cultural centre at Rimbaud and Verlaine's former home. The campaign to save the house was run over many years by Gerry Harrison, a Camden councillor, during the process of which many celebrities have rallied to the cause, including the actor Simon Callow, the writers Julian Barnes, Lisa Appignanesi and Tracy Chevalier and the rock star Patti Smith. In 2007 the house was bought and fully restored by a new owner who has agreed to give the house for use as an Anglo-French cultural centre. Poet in the City, and now the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation, with the support of the Fondation L-A Finances pour la Poésie in Paris and the law firm Herbert Smith, are seeking to raise money for a maintenance fund, allowing for the creation of a "poetry house" at 8 Royal College Street.
