Creative Writing


At Dragon Hall

This friendly writing class is open to all abilities and will focus on poetry and flash fiction, though you can write in different forms too. With warm-up exercises, prompts and shared reading focusing on a different theme each week, tutor Bryony will support you to write and share your work.

Royal Collection Trust

Community Zoom talks from Royal Collection Trust

The next RCT talk taking place on Wednesday 7 September, when we will hear all about the hidden Windsor gem, Frogmore House. Frogmore House, so named due to the large number of frogs in the area originally, stood on the estates of Great and Little Frogmore, which were bought by Henry VIII in the 16th-century. Hugh May, Charles II’s architect at Windsor, built the house for his nephew Thomas May and his wife Anne Aldworth, since its completion in 1684, it’s been occupied by a succession of Crown tenants.

From 1709 to 1738 the house was leased by the Duke of Northumberland, son of Charles II by the Duchess of Cleveland. Following the death of the Duchess of Northumberland in 1738, Frogmore had a succession of occupants, including Edward Walpole, second son of the Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole.

The talk will start at 2pm, and last approximately an hour.
