Tue 31 Aug 2pm – We Heart ARC with Lynne McFarlane

Tue 7 Sept 2pm – All Work and No Play with India Hunter

A walk along the river will take us face to face with the ghosts of Stockton’s former workhouses. Join young history fan India to uncover the lost Victorian legacy of the town, respond to first-hand accounts of life in the workhouse, and discuss the stories that get written out of mainstream history.

Making a gentle loop through the High Street and riverside, join Julie to spend some time gathering sensory impressions of Stockton. Easy writing challenges will lead you to create a free-verse poem conjuring the sights, sounds, smells and textures of the town.
