The Tyca Festival: Finding 'The Lost Words'

Thursday 24 October 16:00 - 17:30

Talk  FamilyEvent Smoother Wheelchair access 

Together with Arts Taunton and Go Create Taunton, we've been bringing the beauty of Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris's book 'The Lost Words' to children in Taunton, to inspire them to write and make art about our natural world. 

The Lost Words was written in response to around 50 nature words being removed from the Oxford Dictionary for Children. Words such as otter, dandelion, bluebell, conker, kingfisher and wren, to name a few.

Now through visits to our amazing Westhay Moor Nature Reserve on Avalon Marshes, we hope children will be inspired to create wonderful works of art and poetry.

The creative writing and artwork produced will be showcased at this celebration event hosted by our President Stephen Moss.

Where: Queen's College, Trull Roadd, Taunton TA1 4QS
