Michael Morpurgo | The Carnival of Animals

Spring Festival 2022

A love of books is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a child. Treat your family and yourself to a magical afternoon of music, storytelling and poetry with Michael Morpurgo, who celebrates the incredible animals who share our planet, and whose habitats are threatened by human thoughtlessness. Joining Michael are actor Natalie Walter and award-winning cellist Clare O’Connell, who will play a selection of pieces inspired by Michael’s poems, including arrangements from Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Carrying a strong ecological message, this event is sure to ignite a love of poetry in the young and old alike.
