Join us for a guided walk along Coventry's 'hidden' River Sherbourne as part of our new digital poetry trail, from FarGo Village to Pool Meadow, with Charlotte Ridpath from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and poet John Bernard. This specially commissioned project traces the route of the River Sherbourne in Coventry. Learn about the ecology and natural history of the river, and listen to the poems on the trail as you go. Please bring your own pen and notebook for writing activities.
To get the most from this workshop, we recommend you download the Overhear Poetry app onto your smartphone from the Android / Apple store for free, and select Re:Versing the Sherbourne digital trail to begin your adventure. For more information see www.theoverhear.app
