Michael Rosen's Weymouth Performance

How did it go?

Oh we did love being by the seaside at the incredibly friendly Weymouth Pavilion! Michael Rosen performed twice - entertaining and inspiring over 1900 children and teachers with his tales of growing up and his poetry. It was a deafening but joyful experience listening to the audience recite 'No Breathing' at the top of their voices!

Bridport Bookshop supplied a bookstall and after both shows Michael signed books, meeting children and teachers. We hope to be back in Weymouth in 2020!


No Breathing!

What people said:

We had an awesome time seeing Michael this morning. The children (and adults) all loved it. It was such a memorable experience for them.
