Celebrating World Poetry Day

Thursday 21 March 2019:
It’s World Poetry Day, and what better time,
To share the delights of WhizzFizz with a fun little rhyme.
The festival celebrates all the creative arts,
With children’s literature and their imaginations at its very heart.
Where to begin, when there’s so much in store?
Listen up, here’s lots of the things you can explore.
There really is something for everyone to enjoy,
For all the ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys.
This year’s amazing literary line up will make your creativity run free,
From the talented authors and illustrators, there’s plenty to see.
Creators of the best-loved children’s books that have inspired you,
We’ll be joined by Nick Butterworth, Cressida Cowell and Judith Kerr too.
‘The Wonder of WhizzFizz’ show is sure to inspire,
Featuring Dame Darcey Bussell, Maddox and Aylesbury Rock Choir.
Spell-bounding magic, dance competitions, and music galore,
The perfect way to round off the day, what more could you ask for?
Indulge in a Teddy Bear’s Picnic if you fancy a treat,
With a mouth-watering menu both savoury and sweet.
And of course, the whole day just wouldn’t be made,
Without the local school children making up our colourful parade.
All through the town, there’s fantastical things to do,
From creative workshops to storytelling and a funfair too.
There’s lots of whizzfizzing fun to explore,
Balloonists and bubbleologists and so much more!
We’ll be joined by amazing local authors throughout the day,
And there’ll be musical and theatre performances on the Runway.
So join us for this year’s WhizzFizzFest,
Come along, bring your friends, and let’s make it the best!
