We were honoured to take part in this year’s Poetry Together whereby the children performed ‘The Crown’ by Carol Ann Duffy which we thought would be fitting in light of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
John from the Chelsea Pensioners also recited ‘For the fallen’ to pay respect for the upcoming Remembrance Service followed by ‘Taking the stand’ written by John Bailey and performed by the children.
Poetry Together is a project led by Gyles Brandreth and Dukes Education to encourage schools and care homes to connect with each other, learn a poem off by heart, and come together to recite. In 2020, we were blessed to perform alongside The Duchess of Cornwall and look forward to many more recitals in the future.
