A brief session at the Bell Pettigrew Museum to prompt your own creativity

Packed full of treasures and wonders, the Bell Pettigrew is a spectacular reminder of how important a museum can be in the study of the natural sciences.’  Sir David Attenborough

MUSA, the Museum of the University of St Andrews, which is the usual venue for StAnza's Musings@MUSA sessions, is currently closed for refurbishment. However on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 March, Musings@MUSA sessions will be offered at the town's Bell Pettigrew Museum, about which Sir David Attenborough has spoken with much enthusiasm. Let museum staff introduce you to a special artefact during drop-in sessions. We hope you will then create poetry inspired by the objects you encounter at this popular event and share it with us. Send your StAnza musings to museumlearning@st-andrews.ac.uk and we'll share our favourites online! Free, drop-in, no booking required. (NB times tbc).

Presented in partnership with MUSA (the Museum of the University of St Andrews)
