James Carter The Big Beyond

The Big Beyond with James Carter

Pull on your space helmet and take an intergalactic adventure with author, poet and musician James Carter, Keith (his guitar) and Steve (his melodica). Hear James read in rhyme from his brand new non-fiction book The Big Beyond, a celebration of space exploration, and Once Upon a Star, which fuses science and verse. Prepare to get involved in this highly interactive, zany event – expect storytelling, drama and music aplenty, and even the chance to create your own out-of-this-world rhyme. 

Great for adults and kids who fancy writing some rhymes and getting some creative inspiration, or who simply want to enjoy some knock-your-socks off poetry.
