A SCHOOL near Petersfield is taking bookings for its newly-launched summer school.

Bedales School is offering adult courses in contemporary song-writing, creative writing and yoga and wellness.

The courses will be led by renowned artists including author Margaret Stohl, who is best known for co-writing the book that inspired 
the film Beautiful Creatures, which premiered in February featuring actors Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson.

Margaret will lead the creative writing course alongside Harvard graduate and award-winning novelist Robin Wasserman.

Contemporary song-writing students will benefit from having folk musician and actor Johnny Flynn.

The speaker programme will be complemented by social events including a visit to local galleries and theatres in Winchester and Chichester, as well as Shakespeare on the school’s grounds from The Petersfield Shakespeare Festival.
