Gamelan & Poetry Workshops

Part of Gamelan

Lambeth primary schools are invited to book free gamelan and poetry workshop sessions.

For the first hour, half your class works with one of our expert tutors to sample group music-making on our beautiful gamelan – a percussion orchestra from Java.

Meanwhile, the other half explores The Poetry Library's collection, working with library staff to enjoy the UK's largest collection of contemporary poetry books and recordings. The groups swap over for the second half of the two-hour session.
