This Friday (21 March 2014), the inimitable Michael Rosen, hero of children’s literature, will launch The Poetry Potting Shed, marking the start of the ‘Earth’ inspired second season of Spoke, with plenty of free, fun activities for children and families.
Weekend activities for 3 - 6 year olds and their families
Come to the Poetry Potting Shed - pop in and meet Poet in Residence, Niall O'Sullivan, have a listen to some live poetry, get involved in a workshop, or contribute to the installation created by young local poets.
No need to book, just turn up!

The new season is led by Apples and Snakes, and will see Poet in Residence, Niall O’Sullivan, running free activities and workshops in the potting shed for local families and primary schools until 04 April.
