Easter YouTube Mini Courses
Over two weeks, we are delivering two brand new mini-courses for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. From 5th-16th April, we’ll post a 30-minute video on our YouTube channel each weekday morning at 10am. We have been marketing the course via social media and our mailing list.
Introduction to Opera & Theatre, exploring Ovid's Metamorphoses through the lens of Handel's 'Acis and Galatea' and Lerner and Loewe's 'My Fair Lady'.
The Meditations Project, which asks the question ‘Who were the Stoic philosophers and how can they help us?’ Over 5 30 minute episodes, we explored the key figures of Stoicism and the influence of their teachings throughout history.

Latin Programme Lecture
On March 3rd at 7pm we held our third Latin Programme Lecture, delivered by Simon Goldhill on the subject ‘The Spectacular Politics of Theatre’. We were delighted to be joined by 40 audience members!
Latin Programme Poetry Prize
In 2020, we launched our inaugural poetry prize. Poets were encouraged to compose a poem using the Latin phrase ‘de rerum natura’ (‘on the nature of things’) as a starting point. How our poets used the phrase was completely up to them.
Many thanks must go to our wonderful judges, Blake Morrison, Deanna Rodger and Ella Hickson, who chose the winner from a shortlist of nine. Read the winning poem and the rest of the longlist here: https://www.thelatinprogramme.co.uk/poetryprize2020
