Park Poetry

Kearsney Abbey
Music & Dance
Saturday 23rd May 2020 (10:30-12:30)

This event has been postponed. We will publicise the new date as soon as we can.

Writing poetry is easy when you have Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens as your inspiration!

Come and learn some handy skills to help you write powerful poetry with just a few, simple words. Set off into the parks to look for inspiration, and take a photo of something that captures your imagination.

Create a poem, using your fabulous photo!

Read your poem to the group if you like, and earn yourself a round of applause.

Please bring your own smartphone or camera with you. All other materials will be supplied.

The workshop is suitable for children aged 6-12 and their families. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

There is no charge for the workshop, but places are limited. To book your place, please email

 There are two other workshops on Saturday 25th APril, The Rhythm of the Park and Saturday 20th June, It's All in the Detail.
