As part of Ripon Poetry Festival's commitment to make poetry available to readers and writers of all ages, three professional poets are spending the day in Ripon's museums helping children from local primary schools write poems. Best-selling poet and former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen is being sent to the Workhouse. Carol Bromley is in the Courthouse. Andy Croft is banged up for the day in the Prison and Police Museum.
