Live Canon launches Scarborough Poetry Walk

Date Posted: 14/04/2014

The Live Canon ensemble is launching a new audio poetry tour of Scarborough, available from 19th April.

Suitable for Key Stage 4 school groups, pupils can explore the local landscape in the new walk, which features poems inspired by the town and its coastline.

Teachers can pick up an mp3 player, headphones and an illustrated map from the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Westborough, and set off on a guided walk with poems recorded by the Live Canon poetry group.

Live Canon is a group of professional actors and theatre makers who perform poetry, from memory, at festivals and theatres.

The Scarborough Poetry Walk is available from 19th April until 4th October at £4 per pupil, from 10am to 4pm (last booking time). All items can be picked up from the SJT Box Office.
