DID YOU KNOW…
… that words are being lost from the Children’s English Dictionary? Words like kingfisher, acorn, dandelion, conker, bramble and magpie, making way for words like Smartphone, and WiFi. In discussion with the Just So Festival, this year’s Musical Theatre Days have been constructed around keeping these words alive, in conjunction with weaving together key characters from opera, creating ‘Into the Clonter Woods’!
