The award ceremony was held at the National theatre, on the South Bank. Hosted by the poet and author A.F.Harrold, it featured performances from the shortlisted poets, and children from as far afield as Birmingham and Norfolk! Two of the poets live in the USA, so they sent video messages to an appreciative audience.
The amazing Chris Riddell, former Children's Laureate, drew live throughout the whole event. It was a great afternoon!
