About this video:

This video is free for schools to use, we hope it will inspire your pupils to enter our poetry competition. The theme for this year’s poem is ‘Happiness’ and you can find out more about the competition at https://ablazebristol.org/poetry2020-21/

Entries for the competition must be received by Friday 18th June 2021.

This video was produced thanks to a kind donation from The National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of #BristolPoeticCity. Ablaze would also like to thank CMS and Intellect for supporting the poetry competition. Thank you also to Mrs Johnson and Miss Hansford from Broomhill Junior School for their help in reviewing the content of the video workshop.
