Podcast Workshop with Polarbear: The Story of the Lost Library

Join spoken word artist Polarbear to help create a podcast inspired by the 19th century library
at Orleans House; re-imagining the character’s that might have used the library and the books it contained.

Born and raised in the city of Birmingham, Steven Camden aka Polarbear is one of the most respected spoken word artists in the UK. After an accidental fall into spoken word involving a broken P.A system and a complete misunderstanding, he developed into a fully-fledged spoken word artist known for delivering stories that make sense. In his unique performances, language and rhyme patterns from his Hip-Hop roots combine with the day-to-day sentiment of a man trying to figure things out. Performances at Glastonbury, OneTaste, Electric Picnic and Jazz Café, as well as a UK tour in 2006, have built up his reputation as a storyteller for the twenty-fi rst century.

An exciting opportunity for families to uncover the hidden history of Orleans House and create something new.

Suitable for children aged 7 years + and their families
