Poems were read on the twin themes of love and justice, including those by TS Eliot, John Betjeman, WH Auden, Wendy Cope and George Bell.

Richard Symonds, of the Bell Society, said: “At the end of the evening there was a collection for the Medical Foundation for the Victims of Torture. A similar event is now planned for Bishop Bell’s 60th anniversary next year.”

He was the Bishop of Chichester between 1929 and 1958.

He became well-known for his work helping refugees during the Second World War.
