What's on

Derby Poetry Festival: Bananas Write Poems, Too : Children’s Poetry Workshop with Attie Lime – QUAD, Derby

Event details

Attie Lime writes and performs poems for children. Her poetry may contain rhyme, nonsense, talking fruit, and sometimes requires the audience to shout at her.

After some word games to warm up our imaginations, we will help inanimate objects to write fantastic poetry.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, adults go free

Presented as part of Derby Poetry Festival 2023.

About Derby Poetry Festival

Often referred to as DPF, Derby Poetry Festival is a four-day poetry and literature festival held in the centre of Derby. We are dedicated to developing new writing talent in Derby and bringing excellent work to the city. DPF has just entered its fifth year, and 2023 is set to be bigger and better than ever.

We work with local, national and international talent to build a community of like-minded individuals to create a wonderful literary festival.

Derby Poetry Festival is supported by Arts Council England, Derby City Council and presented in partnership with Cathedral Quarter Derby.
