Ele Fountain performance

How did it go?

We had a fantastic start to our autumn 2023 programme, with the extremely brilliant author Ele Fountain at the Bloomsbury theatre in London, talking about her book Wild. Ele’s talk was super-informative - she discussed the pressing issues of climate chaos, the importance of the rainforest, and preserving its plants and animals, what we can do to make a difference, as well as her top tips on how to become an author, and where you can find great ideas for stories. The audience of 500 children from local primary schools was captivated from start to finish, and then left grinning clutching their very own copy of Ele’s book Wild. Wonderful!

Ele Fountain Workshop

Year 5 and 6 children from four lucky London schools enjoyed working on their creative writing skills in a fascinating workshop run by Ele Fountain. The children loved having Ele in their classroom, especially after having seen her on stage at the Bloomsbury Theatre.
