Meet poet Joseph Coelho @ Riddings Pool

Free event but you need to register for tickets here

Join author and poet, Joseph Coelho as he performs and talks about poems from his most recent book, A Year of Nature Poems. Find out how he uses memory and the world around him as inspiration and discover some of the true stories behind these fabulous poems.

Coelho has set himself the challenge of joining a library in every Library Authority in the UK in a quest to celebrate the inclusive, vital role libraries play in our lives and to encourage as many people as possible to #JoinYourLibrary. As part of his ‘Library Marathon’ Joseph will physically visit a library in each authority to join and receive his library card. He’ll plot his progress on a giant library marathon map on his website at https://www.thepoetryofjosephcoelho.com tweeting and blogging his journey around the UK.

Joseph has long been a passionate and vociferous supporter of libraries in the UK. His debut picture book, Luna Loves Library Day, illustrated by Fiona Lumbers and published by Andersen Press, celebrates his love for libraries and his own childhood spent in libraries:

Twisted Tales for Terrible Children @ Riddings Library

Scratch the surface of all the tales we have heard since childhood and we find they are dark, nasty and full of dubious intention… A slight twist reveals the terrible, the silly and the downright incredible ’truths’ hidden in plain sight.

Gav Cross: Storyteller; Show Off and Chief Idiocy Wrangler for Funny Looking Kids: Comedy Club – brings these old fables to life again vividly. You’ll have heard these stories before but not told this way!

An hour of nonsense and nastiness that will trigger giggles and gasps, with the added risk of ruining your childhood forever… Take a peak at the Gav Cross website

Human Machines Family Funday @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

Human Machines Family Funday @ 20-21 Visual Arts Centre

We’re busy planning lots of fun things to see and do for this Funday linked to Johnny White and Amanda Wray’s exhibition Human Machines. This exhibition of humorous and interactive kinetic sculptures is inspired by the common experiences and feelings, as well as pivotal moments in life, which affect us all as humans.

Visitors can try out our giant sized ‘Operation’ game where a steady hand is needed to remove the vital organs and a selection of bones without setting off the buzzer. You can also have a go at making some gory and gloopy things such as a ‘pot of snot’ and a bloodshot eyeball. Don’t forget to get your face painted as well. Facepainting will be available from 11am-1pm.

The gallery is also participating in North Lincolnshire Council’s Power of Words Festival today. Sheffield based poet Joe Kriss will be spending the day at 20-21, helping visitors to compose their own verse in response to the Human Machines exhibition.
