Monks’ Dyke Technology College monologues

YEAR 7 students from Monks’ Dyke Technology College and Caistor Grammar School have been working together to write and prepare dramatic monologues, inspired by Olympic values like friendship, respect and determination.

They performed them to a packed house at the Manor House in Alford when it played host to a Lyric Lounge event.

The students impressed the audience with the confidence with which they delivered their work.

Also performing were international poets John Agard and Grace Nichols who were full of praise for the young writers and the work they had put into their performance.

After the show, the group had a chance to meet John and Grace who were more than happy to offer encouragement and advice to the budding writers.
