Imaginative Neighbourhoods - Beaumont Leys

Our artists in residence at Beaumont Leys Library were Owen Craven-Griffiths and early years specialist Dave 'Stickman' Higgins.

Owen says:-

I am a poet, theatre maker and animator and I'm really interested in hearing all your stories and finding out what you'd be interested in doing over the next year. If you have any ideas or just fancy a chat then please do pop in and see me. I'm really excited to see what the next year holds and can't wait to throw myself into it.

A film created by the children of Buswell's Lodge school reading club, inspired by the book Dog Man by Dav Pilkey which is in the Leicester Our Best Book 2018 shortlist.
