On Wednesday, 16 October 2019, the inaugural Poetry Together tea party took place in London.

Five schools and their care home partners came together to represent over 250 schools and care homes that had signed up for the initiative. They were joined by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall and everyone recited their favourite poems! Have a look at this wonderful afternoon.
