Larkspur Community Primary School: Songs Inspired by Saltwell Park

In Summer 2022 pupils from Larkspur Community Primary School worked with musician Jeremy Bradfield and producer Becci Sharrock to create songs for Saltwell Park in Gateshead. As part of the project they visited the park for inspiration and to collect sounds that were used in their final compositions. At the end of term, they performed their songs at the Recoco Retreat in the park for an audience of family and school staff, and celebrated their achievements.

The project was part of New Writing North’s ongoing Gateshead Young Writers Programme, which is made possible with the generous support of the Kavli Trust.
