The programme can include extracts from a classic play text, or a series of shorter extracts from poetry, set novels or modern play texts. Schools are encouraged to experiment with presentation, e.g. share a text extract or text character, add projection, music, dance or stylised movement to support a poetic reading or text narration. Tickets will be available for the final performance. For further details contact email@example.com.

February - June 2015
A theatre performance in March by poets Luke Wright and Molly Naylor for 120 nine to eleven year olds from local primaries follows a teacher training event in February. The performance poets will then run in-school workshops to inspire the children to create their own poetry. PoetryQuest culminates in a celebratory performance at the Playhouse where all the students perform their own poetry supported by Luke and Molly in front of peers, teachers and families.
"PoetryQuest allows poetry to play a central role in the life of children and encourages them to discover, explore and enjoy the manifold and various delights of language." Sir Andrew Motion
