Finding ‘The Lost Words’

Date(s) - 24/10/2019
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Queen's College

An artistic celebration of nature through words and image


On 24 October, poems will be presented by the young authors from Taunton and anyone and everyone is welcome to come and listen! And as well as the poetry reading there will be our presentation from a member of the Somerset Youth Parliament. The event will be hosted by Stephen Moss, a BBC Natural History Unit producer and leading nature writer.

We have joined forces with Somerset Wildlife Trust to bring the beauty of the book The Lost Words to primary and secondary-aged children throughout Taunton. We want to inspire them to write about our natural world. This will be happening during workshops in primary schools in October.

The Lost Words is a book of poetry written by Robert MacFarlane and illustrated by Jackie Morris. It highlights the words from nature we are losing from the English language, and the growing gulf between childhood and the natural world. This year, The Lost Words also inspired the Children’s Prom at the Royal Albert Hall on 25 August 2019, so we are in excellent company!

Tickets are just £5.
