CHRISTMAS POETRY  – SPECIAL EVENT

Do you need a gift for someone special? In this poetry workshop we will get into the christmas spirit, playing festive songs and reading  winter poetry  with your children.

They will spend time decorating their masterpieces and then we will frame them and wrap them up – ready to put under the tree.

CATS, CATS, CATS…

T.S. Eliot, the famous poet, spent many years in England until his death in London on January 4, 1965. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats is based  on Eliot’s famous work Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.  Cats have always been popular in literature, especially children’s. We will explore cats in poetry and music and  create our own feline characters to set them free into our modern world.
