Frank Cottrell-Boyce performance

How did it go?

The amazing author Frank Cottrell-Boyce took to the stage at the Newcastle Theatre Royal this morning, and what a wonderful event it was! Over 900 children from local primary schools were captivated by Frank’s stories of childhood and his writing life, and loved listening to readings from the brilliant Noah’s Gold. There were lots of questions about sharks and everyone left the auditorium clutching a free book, and grinning from ear to ear!

Frank Cottrell-Boyce Workshop

In this lively and interactive workshop, writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce will come to your school to work with a class of children and help them develop their own creative writing skills. There will be lots of opportunity for the children to get writing themselves and time to share their work with the rest of the class.

Daniel Morden Workshop in Newcastle

In this lively and interactive workshop, Daniel Morden works with children to help them develop their own narrative skills. The focus of the workshop will be on creating a convincing and satisfying story. After a brief introduction and discussion, Daniel will tell a traditional tale. He will then discuss the structure of the story. The children will use that structure to write their own versions.
