Luton Literature Book Festival: Planet Poets! Workshop
11:30am - 12:30pm
Another planet has contacted Planet Earth! They are very friendly, and want to know all about what makes our planet special. But - they only understand poetry. So we need the help of the Planet Poets!
Come along to the spoken word poetry workshop and create spoken word poems, celebrating our planet/the natural environment.
The workshop includes:
- Fun, interactive word games (encouraging creativity, finding fun vocabulary for our poems)
- Movement/performance (using movement to support poetry creation, thinking about sounds/words that describe sounds)
- The chance to share our poems, at the end of the workshop
This is an in-person event at the Hat Factory.
11.30am to 12.30pm in the Hat Factory Floor. Ages 6-9.

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
