Barbara Henderson

Workshop - Meddlesome Middle Ages

Online Event
Sat 3 Oct
14:00 UK
Free, ticketed
FREE | Ages 8-13 
Join children's writer Barbara Henderson for castle themed drama and storytelling, inspired by her new children's book for 8-12 year olds, The Siege of Caerlaverock. Get creative in a world of danger and dungeons, castles and courage, villainy and valour. An interactive live session with readings, live drama games, creative writing and shadow puppetry. 
Participants should bring a pencil, paper to write on, scissors, a sheet of card ( a cereal box will do perfectly) and a sheet of white paper. 

 SAFEGUARDING NOTE: Please be aware this is an interactive session. Participants will be able to see and hear each other as well as Barbara. The event will be monitored by WFC staff. Participants will be brought in from the waiting room one by one and asked to put their camera on to prove they are under 18 years of age (though adult supervision of anyone under 18 is of course welcome). Participants will be asked to rename themselves to only a first name or nickname. They will be put back into the waiting room while all participants are verified and then it is the choice of each individual whether they return with camera on or off when all participants are admitted. 
Please do not log in late as unverified participants will not be admitted. Verification will begin at 2pm and the event will begin no later than 2.15pm. Participants will have the ability to unmute themselves or they can type questions and responses in the chat box. Participants may not share any personal information such as name, location or contact details with other participants - anyone doing so will be removed from the event. If parents have any queries regarding our safeguarding processes, please contact Operational Director, Anne Barclay, on [email protected] 
Thank you for helping us keep your children and young people safe.
