‘The Dragon Who Hates Poetry’ - with Dommy B from BBC’s ‘Rhyme Rocket’.
“There is no dragon scarier in any earthly place. His face looks like his bottom and his bottom like his face...” A fun, solo show packed full of lyrics, laughter and lots of joining in! Armed with only pen and paper, poet Dommy B needs your help to bring this fearful dragon’s reign to an end! As seen on BBC’s ‘Rhyme Rocket’, The Dragon Who Hates Poetry is written and performed by slam winning poet Dommy B, winner of New York’s famous Nuyorican Poetry Cafe Slam and UK’s Superheroes of Slam. The show enjoyed a full month’s run at 2013’s Edinburgh Fringe before embarking on a sell out 2014 UK tour from Brighton up to Glasgow! Children free, adults £3.00.

'Florence & Jem - the Whale in the Woods'
Eighteen months ago following the birth of his daughter, Florence, local resident Julian Oxley was moved to write a children’s book and took inspiration from his daily walk in Meanwood Park and the Hollies with the family dog, Jem.

It has been beautifully illustrated by Clare Morgan and features details from the local woodland. Julian will be reading an extract and talking about his experience publishing his first book.
