Glaven Valley Arts Society Young Arts Project 2018


To mark the 50th Anniversary year of The Arts Society, the Glaven Valley Society agreed to help fund The Falcon Poetry Slam and donated £2000 towards the final cost of the project. The project involved children from five local primary schools taking part in an inter-schools poetry competition. Each school had two whole days of an in-school workshop with Molly Naylor, who was the lead poet, during which time the children wrote, developed and performed their poems in front of the whole school. The best poems were then selected and included in a final Grand Slam competition at the Little Theatre Sheringham. This venue was generously donated by Debbie Taylor the theatre’s resident director. The five schools met on 10 July to compete for prizes for the best poems. Each school performed two poems. There was a special performance of the winning poems for parents, donors and members of the Art Society.
