BUDDING poets from across Barnsley are being invited to help create a poem about the town.

The Barnsley people's poem will be recorded at the Civic on November 10, with guidance from poet Ian McMillan.

The poem will be played for visitors at the Experience Barnsley Museum, opening at the town hall next summer.

The event starts at 10.30am and will be finished by 12.30pm.

The event is open to all and suitable for families and children – just turn up on the day to take part.

* Just for fun: We thought we'd have a go at a WAB version!

We will start you off and lets do it like a pass the story - feel free to join in! *

Barnsley - how we love thee...
