Nature writing, Poetry and a Tiger Hunt  -  all in a beautiful garden

A North Yorkshire book festival and country house are working together to create a day of literary events to delight visitors of all ages, with a nature theme.

On Sunday 25 June the beautiful Walled Garden  of Scampston Hall will open its gates to welcome five acclaimed writers whose work celebrates wildlife and nature. The special guests include Cumbrian writer Jacob Polley who will be reading from his most recent book “Jackself” which explores English folklore. Jacob, not known for giving many live performances, was awarded the prestigious T. S. Elliot Prize for Poetry last year and is surely a treat not to be missed.

Biologist and journalist Dr Amy-Jane Beer will be holding a half-day nature writing workshop, giving participants exclusive access to the stunning gardens before they open to the public, to gain inspiration for their writing.

West Yorkshire based, multi award-winning author, Horatio Clare, will be reading from his latest  book, ‘Aubrey and the Terrible Ladybirds’ and then holding a creative writing workshop for children, where they will be encouraged to create their own mini beast character.

For something perhaps more scientific, but just as fun, award-winning poet and lyricist Anneliese Emmans-Dean will be showcasing her work ‘Buzzing!’ and latest book “Flying High”, factually accurate books about the poetry of garden mini-beasts and birds, that incorporates poetry within them. Also a performance poet, Anneliese invites visitors to join her  ‘Poetry Promenade”. As they walk around the garden discovering wildlife she will share her poems along the way. What could be a more  fun or creative way for youngsters to learn more about the natural world?
