Current Tours with Book a Poet

  • The Isle of Wight: The prize-winning children’s poet, James Carter, will be touring schools in the Isle of Wight from the 17th - 20th September. James is available for full days with KS1, KS2 and pupils from Year 7. He also runs Gifted & Talented days, as well as INSET poetry days for primary teachers (half and full days available). A full day is £500.

  • Somerset:  From 26th to the 30th November, the talented and creative poet Terry Caffrey, is on his ‘Food for Thought’ tour. With emphasis on fun, Terry facilitates workshops for all ages and abilities – with over 3,500 school visits under his belt, Terry is a firm favourite across the UK. He can offer workshops for KS1, KS2, KS3, Special Schools, G&T plus INSET days for teachers. With Somerset’s economy centred around agriculture and food production, plus its historical sites this makes great inspiration for writing poetry! A full day with Terry is £550.

  • Oxford: In Spring 2013 poet and children’s author Kenneth Steven will be visiting schools in and around Oxford. Dates TBC – contact us now and we’ll email you with all the information as soon as it becomes available. A full day with Kenneth is £360, half days are £250 and 90 minute sessions are £180. As Kenneth is based in Scotland his visits to England sell out quickly, so do get in touch as soon as you can.

  • South Wales: James Carter and his guitar (called Keith) are available for workshops for KS1, KS2 and Year 7 for a handful of dates throughout June and July. Contact us for further information.

Other Workshops Planned

  • Drama & Poetry Workshops: the talented poet, Victor Richards, is running workshops throughout Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. His unique method means children don’t have to use pen and paper; they can create their own poems, practice, memorise and perform it all at the same time! Half day workshop is £150, full days £250 per class (plus travel). Get in touch to book now to book a class for your school!

Further tour information for Roger Stevens and Mixy will follow shortly.
