There are no scheduled instances of Shut Down, not Shut Up! Family Poetry (online). You can view similar events below.

Led by Simon Mole

Free poetry workshops for ages 4+ years and accompanying grown ups.

Goggles! Umbrella! Hullaballoo! Out of all the words in the world what’s your favourite?
Join poet Simon Mole on a quest to find the best sounding words in existence, and possibly make up a few new ones too…

The group will play some fun games and activities to build skills and confidence on Zoom before Simon leads a step by step poetry tutorial to help you write your own work.

These summer sessions are the first of an exciting longer project - be part of the writing (and performance!) team for one of the first events to be hosted at Norden Farm in the Autumn once the venue re-opens.

Make sure you have a pen and paper at the ready.

Wed 5 and 12 Aug
10.15am - 10.55am
Free Workshop - places are limited and must be booked in advance
Booking cut off time: 9am on the day of each session


How do our online classes work?

The classes will take place via a video stream on Zoom where you'll be able to use the camera and audio on your tablet, laptop or other device to see and hear the tutor and other participants.

You simply need to book on to your class or workshop of choice as normal by the cut off time. We'll then send you an email with a link to your session, password and a meeting ID. These will be emailed to you after the booking cut off time, shortly before the class begins.
