KPF22 Children’s Poetry – Ages 11-14

Literature |

9.30 am – 11.30am (morning session), 12.30pm – 2.30pm (afternoon session) | Tickets £2.50 | Brewery Arts: Theatre

Join celebrated children’s poet and acclaimed performer Matt Abbott for a spoken word poetry performance bonanza! Pupils will be shown how to bring their poems to life and boost their confidence when it comes to public speaking in general.

With a range of exercises based on pacing, diction, and tone, pupils will learn to get the most out of the text that they’re sharing. There’ll also be a writing-based exercise that will help smaller groups of pupils to create example poems for them to then perform during the workshop.

A dynamic, accessible workshop to inject fun into poetry and performance!

Tickets £2.50 per pupil.  Schools should choose either the morning session or the afternoon session.

Kendal Poetry Festival’s trademark emphasis is on inclusivity and accessibility. This year we continue to offer free tickets to young people, people with disabilities and their carers. If you are under 21 or have a disability, please select the ‘concessions’ ticket at checkout to receive your free ticket.
