Poet Simon Mole and musician Gecko’s indoor Poetry Picnic is coming to the Albany in South East London, with the theatre audience taking part from their picnic blankets in their bubbles, and also online.

Mole and Gecko will play fun (and quite silly!) games to build confidence and skill with words, and then help you write a poem or a song with the power to send your picnic blanket skywards.

For the grand finale, with a little technical wizardry, the Albany audience will join the online audience of living room picnics to share a sandwich simile or two together. This celebration of music and poetry is the perfect Sunday afternoon boredom-buster for 8-12 year olds.

Following this première of Mole & Gecko’s Poetry Picnic on 15 November, the show’s producer Rua Arts hopes that it will tour in 2021, adapting to the current climate by continuing to offer a performance model combining live and online audiences – perhaps even leading to a world-wide poetry picnic!

Please note: this event is Bring Your Own Biscuits. Escape everything! Except the kids, because they’re coming too, to picnic with you.

Mole & Gecko’s Poetry Picnic is created by Simon Mole, Gecko and Peader Kirk. It is produced by Rua Arts and funded by Arts Council England.
