Following the Government announcement about the current Coronavirus guidelines this event will be held online only.

Pen a poem (or a song) with the power to send your picnic blanket skywards.

Where will we travel to today? The rhyme river. A Jazz Cave. Giggle town. It’s totally up to you. And us a little bit to be honest.

We’ll play fun (and quite silly) games to build your confidence and skill with words, and then help you write a poem or a song. For our finale we’ll join a live online audience of living room picnics to share a sandwich simile or two…

Please note, this event is Bring Your Own Biscuits.

Escape everything! Except the kids, because they’re coming too, to picnic with you.

We recommend you download the Poetry Picnic Pack List before the event which is full of activities and top tips to get the most fun from your home picnic!
