The Children’s Bookshow: poetry event for primary schools with FREE BOOKS & workshops

Start date:


The Children’s Bookshow has an amazing offer for primary schools: we are bringing award-winning poet, Rachel Rooney, to the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton on Monday 15 November for an hour-long vibrant and interactive poetry performance, suitable for years 4, 5 and 6.

Tickets are £6 per child with accompanying adults free of charge.

EVERY child attending will receive a beautiful hardback copy of A Kid in My Class, Rachel Rooney’s most recent poetry collection (worth £10.99 and illustrated by former children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell) absolutely FREE!

We also have four free in-school workshops to give away to schools bringing more than 30 children to the performance. Rachel Rooney will visit four schools to run a 90-minute poetry workshop for a class of children.

Finally, we’ll be giving schools a free poetry teaching resource pack featuring 12 individual lesson plans that explore A Kid in My Class.
