I took part in a small Arts Festival of poetry and music in our Lakeland village of Dockray. It was held in the special and very spiritual setting of Lucy’s Barn.

The afternoon was for the local children and I spent about 40 minutes reading my poems in an interactive session which ended with the kids helping me to bring the Greek myth of `Philemon and Baucis’ to life. We had some great little readers to take part and the kids did incredibly well for a sight reading/first performance session. The event raised £4,000 for the local hospice.
