The Great Hall of Oxfordshire's Broughton Castle is the setting for this poetry workshop. Writer and teacher Kate Clanchy asks a group of teenagers to write down poetic images inspired by this extraordinary and ancient building. Kate asks questions to help the process, for example: If the castle was a creature, what creature would it be? What season is this castle? Is it winter or summer? What time of day is this castle? Night? Dawn? The resulting images written by the young people are then assembled into a remarkable poem performed by Caroline Bird.
