Come along to the Ning, Nang, Nong, where the cows go bong - or maybe find out a bit more about the bald twit lion…

If you are at a bit of a loose end and would like to do something a little bit silly, why not bring the children along to one of our free poetry workshops, inspired by the poetry of Spike Milligan, encouraging children to play with words, create the wild and the nonsensical – and have a lot of fun.

All children must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Millifest is a not-for-profit festival, supporting the work of local mental health charities.

There is no need to book for these events, please just turn up.

Should you require any further information about these events, please contact:


30 May: 11am-12.30pm and 2pm-3.30pm

31 May: 11am-12.30pm and 2pm-3.30pm

4 June: 11am-12.30pm


4 June: 2pm-3.30pm

All the children who have taken part in the nonsense poetry workshops are invited to read their creations for their friends and family in the Studio at the De la Warr Pavilion.
