Spoken Word workshop


  • Category: Youth Theatre

Full Description

Recommended for ages 13 – 19. From 10am – 4pm.

After a fantastic workshop with us in April, award-winning writer and performer Maria Ferguson is back due to popular demand. Explore the world of spoken word through writing and performing, and cover topics far and wide from silly debates to important issues. No writing experience necessary – although you’ll have plenty by the end of the day!

Where do I go?
Directions to Trinity Theatre can be found using Google Maps and our postcode is TN1 1JP.

Our Youth and Learning team will meet you in the Trinity Theatre foyer at 10am.

Who’s running the day?
The day will be led by Maria Ferguson. Maria Ferguson is a writer and performer from Romford, Essex. She has been a resident artist for both Roundhouse and Battersea Arts Centre, where she has developed and performed exciting new work blending spoken word, theatre and movement. She has performed her poetry extensively across the UK and collaborated with prestigious venues such as The Albany, Bristol Old Vic, Richmix and Southbank Centre, as well as popular spoken word artists Polarbear, Scroobius Pip, John Berkavitch and Kate Tempest.

What do I need to bring?

Our Kitchen and Bar will be serving hot and cold food which can be purchased if preferred, but please note it can take some time to prepare. Children will be responsible for any money they bring with them. They will not be allowed to go off site during the day.
