News The Starting Line heads to the Southbank this half-term

Last year we commissioned stand up poet, broadcaster and first ever Great North Run Poet in Residence Kate Fox to make a new show for families. This week The Starting Line makes its London debut as part of the Imagine children’s festival at the Southbank Centre in London.

The Starting Line, a funny, thoughtful, interactive family show about running and writing, was a big hit with families and school groups at Live theatre in Newcastle and the Manchester Children’s Book Festival. Kate explains how she came up with the idea for the show, and what writing a poem to perform live on BBC ONE while running the Great North Run was really like in this short video:

The Starting Line is on in the Foyer Space at the Southbank Centre on Thursday 21st February at 3pm. For more details or to book tickets online click here.

Produced by ARC Stockton Arts Centre and developed in association with the Manchester Children’s Book Festival.
