Home: Family Poetry Workshop

Acclaimed poet Paul Lyalls leads an interactive poetry workshop for the whole family at The Foundling Museum. Attendees are encouraged to use their imagination to create and perform unique poems on the theme of home.

Lyalls has gigged many unusual places, from Arsenal FC’s dressing room to a variety of shops in the N1 London Shopping Centre. He has performed alongside a wealth of artists including Will Self, Kate Tempest, Miranda Hart and John Cooper Clarke and has run hundreds of workshops in secondary and primary schools, youth projects and prisons. As a performance poet and spoken word artist, his work has taken him to 10 Edinburgh Festivals along with many prestigious venues in cities as diverse as New York to Belfast. From 2013-14 Lyalls was Poet in Residence at the Roald Dahl Museum. His latest children’s poetry collection is A Funny Thing Happened .
Suitable for ages 5+.
