The Magical World of Roald Dahl: Step Away from the Cliché at Tatton Park
Thu 4 August 2016, 10:30 – 12:30 BST
A special opportunity to experience a creative writing workshop with former Cheshire poet laureate, Joy Winkler, with content inspired by Roald Dahl's stories. About this workshop, Joy says: "Children love astonishing stories. Roald Dahl showed us that grannies are not always cuddly and kind and giants are not always dangerous. But good storytelling is important no matter who or what the story is about. In this creative writing workshop children will have the opportunity to create unusual stories using the landscape of the surrounding in Tatton Park. However, flowers may not always be beautiful and sweet smelling and trees may have unexpected ways of treating children who climb them and sit in their branches." Recommended for children aged between 7 and 11 years old. This package includes a notebook and pen to use for the session and take home to continue your writing.
