For ages 5-9+

Dom Conlon LOVES space. He also loves poetry. This might be why he’s been called “Poet Laureate to the Moon”, and it’s definitely why he’s written his books – Astro Poetica and This Rock That Rock.

In this stellar performance, Dom will take you on a journey through our solar system and beyond, into the far reaches of the known universe. From the Big Bang to Black Holes, you’ll encounter all kinds of exciting intergalactic mysteries, whilst Dom’s poetry, and love of all things astronomical will fire up children’s imagination, and hopefully inspire them to write some out of this world poetry of their own.

Funded by Bradford Opportunity Area, events explore everything from constructing beatbox rhymes to space inspired verse as poets from Bradford and beyond share their top tips for creating captivating poems. Content is suitable for students across KS1 and KS2.

For each or our themed days children can take part in an exciting competition tailored to their Key Stage/ age. For more information, view our competition packs linked below:
