Michael Rosen and guests celebrate nonsense at an event recorded at Radio 4's More The Words festival in Bristol. Michael's guests include the children's writer Philip Ardagh, the actor Paul Nicholson, and nonsense experts Anna Barton and James Williams. With help from an audience of adults and children at Bristol Central Library, Michael will be filling a cauldron with nonsense poems, prose, limericks and tongue twisters, with a few nonsense sounds thrown in to bring out the flavour. And the programme will mark the 200th anniversary of Edward Lear's birth with discussion of the writer's life and work.
