Join poet Kate Wakeling for a spectacular family poetry workshop at Kings Place.

Kate promises to take your family on a super-sonic treasure hunt to help you find the secret music that can be heard in poetry in this interactive workshop that the whole family can get involved in.

Kids will have the chance to create poems of their own (with expert guidance!), before hearing Kate perform her award-winning poetry collection, Moon Juice, live. Be prepared to concoct your very own blend of sonic moon juice, race a comet, make a soundscape to accompany a rascally jungle cat, offer an ode to the dodo, and compose your very own pirate chant. A brilliant workshop for creative kids and their families!
