The former children’s laureate presented the awards for the PRIMARY SCHOOLS POETRY PRIZE and the winners read their poems on “Colours”.

Michael then introduced us to Paolo Levi, a legendary violinist who has always refused to play and talk about Mozart until one day he decides to tell his story to a young journalist. This wonderful tale was discovered as we were taken on an amazing journey of a story-maker extraordinaire.
