We'd like to stay in touch!

We are updating how we communicate with our audiences. Let us know which communications you would like to continue receiving, otherwise you may stop hearing from us.

All Write Together

All Write Together is our new community project - enabling us to come together virtually and share what we we’re all going through - because we are always stronger together!

This poetry based project is led by Maidonian, poet and author Simon Mole. It will give us the space to share our journey through these extraordinary times. We're inviting everyone to take part and contribute to a community poem that we've commissioned Simon to write. The final poem will be made into film featuring animation by Scott Tyrrell.

All ages can join in and it's easy to take part!

Let Simon tell you a little bit more about All Write Together in the clip below...
