Spoken word poet Chris Redmond shares knowledge with Millfield pupils

Pupils from across the school had the opportunity to watch and work with performance poet Chris Redmond, who has performed all over the world and on BBC Radio 1, 4 and CBBC. Chris also hosts the extremely successful musical poetry night, Tongue Fu.

Year 9 pupils watched Chris perform some of his most popular poetry in the Johnson Hall. The pupils were intrigued and participated in the ‘call and response’ part of his performance with enthusiasm.

Several pupils from different years gained great creative insight from a writing workshop with Chris later in the day, crafting their own performance poems on the Meyer stage.

In the evening, A level English Literature pupils watched Chris perform a variation on his usual show, which included piano and ukulele elements as well as his performance poems.
