Treehouse of Stories – launch event

mattWe are thrilled that poet Matt Black will be working with us over the summer and into the autumn, funded by West Midlands Readers’ Network.  Matt will be hosting poetry and storytelling sessions in the bookshop and down by the swimming pool/play area in Abbey Fields, and there will be other events and activities over the summer.  He and Tree House bastion John Watson are even building a treehouse to go inside the Tree House, big enough for Matt to sit inside and read stories!

We are launching this initiative on Saturday 30 June, from about 12.30 until about 4pm, with live music from the fabulous Hatstand Band, a cartoon drawing working (1.15pm) with artist Okse, poetry, free tea and cake, and more.  We will incorporate watching the Carnival parade as it passes by at around 2.45pm.

Do come and join in the fun!

  1. Hi Victoria. This is so lovely. Matt was in Selma’s class today sharing his poetry. She’s been reciting the funny bits tonight and loves the tree house idea. We’ll be down on Saturday after carnival (she’s on the St John’s school float) to check it out.
    Hope you well,

    • Ah, thanks Claire! That’s lovely to hear. Matt is wonderful (and yes, very funny!). Will be great to see you on Saturday – we’ll watch the carnival parade too.
