Student Poets Open Festival

23rd October 2018

Well done to Owen Bruton, Chloe Dyason, Aiden Harvey, Josh Honeysett, Jess Leck, Tilly Murdock, Aimee Nevis and Gracie Whitfield for performing at the opening of the Festival of Words at the Treasure House on Thursday 18th October. Students were applauded by family, friends and prize winning author Val Wood; all of them received a certificate of commendation from East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Over the last six weeks the students have been working with the poet Catherine Scott in preparation for the event and a previous recital to the Reminiscence Group. It has been fabulous to watch their poetry and performance skills develop, and also for them to experience the positive benefits of working with the local community.

Thank you to EYRC for funding this project and the support of all the librarians at the Treasure House, and to Catherine Scott for her expertise and enthusiasm.
