Monday 21st


Black Ven Poetry Club Workshop
 Six monthly live poetry workshops exploring ways of harnessing creativity to write poems, speak poems, and connect with the nature and elements outside.  Anyone who is interested in how to develop ideas into poetry on the page, and on the stage. Join us if you’re interested in thinking about language, articulation, story, speaking out and how. The workshops are aimed at poets, dreamers and thinkers. All abilities welcome.  The workshops will involve: -
  Introducing themes to engage with nature and develop tools to write with, plus broad guidance and discussion about different approaches to composition and style;  Readings of relevant literature, and poetry; Deep Listening and meditation; A 15-minute outdoor learning observation exercise (outside and in silence); Sharing our experiences from our 15 minutes and finding threads to work into; Guest teachings on how to stand up and offer your poems to others from theatre performance, music and acting specialists to teach breathing, physicality, microphone technique and voice control using basic exercises.  You will probably not come away with a poem or finished piece at the end of the workshop, but tools to work with between the sessions. You may find that the teachings allow release for new thinking in other areas, or being able to tap into creativity more deeply in any artform.  Price: £10 or £6 if you are a regular face at the local Apothecary or Vittals & Verse open mic poetry nights.   12 - 2pm Marine Theatre Bar, Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis DT73QB   Contact: blackvenpress@gmail.com or sarah@marinetheatre.com

WALKS and TOURS

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!

FOSSIL WALKS

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
