Bath Literature Festival: The Chancery of Lost & Found


Sarah has asked us to let local Bath home educators know about this.

We are running a specific home schooled workshop for KS2 (7 – 11yr olds) at our Learning and Participation event during Bath Literature Festival. We only have 10 spaces available. Parents to accompany but only the child needs a ticket at £5 available from Bath Box office.

The Chancery of Lost and Found

What would Bath be like if it existed only in your imagination? Where would the streets take you? Step into a world where past, present and future meet: The Chancery of Lost and Found.

Over the week of the festival, writer Alice Maddicott, working in collaboration with our Young Writers Lab, will set up residence in the Chancery, creating characters, stories and poems to build an evolving fictional, multi-dimensional version of Bath - a growing home for memories, ideas and imaginary futures. We invite you to join us in this creation. Come to the Chancery in Milsom Place to write your own imaginary Bath, drop off memories, bring in old photos, ephemera or objects to add to our collaborative installation, link to other people's creations, and explore as the Chancery becomes a wonderful literary archive for the city.

Alice Maddicott will be running writing workshops each day in the Chancery for school groups, where pupils can create narratives, characters and plot within the setting of a fictional Bath. Their work will be added to our growing installation, giving pupils an inspiring, imaginative space in which to write for a real purpose and audience.

The venue is in Milsom Place, please bring your students to the Broad Street entrance between Cath Kidston and Phase Eight, either Sarah or another member of the Bath Festivals team will be there to meet you
Weds 4th March 2-3.30pm. 10 spaces. £5 per child, 6-11.

If you are interested, PLEASE BOOK DIRECTLY WITH BATH BOX OFFICE on 01225 463362 or by popping in. All you will need to tell them is that you are booking on the Chancery workshop on the Wednesday afternoon.
