Dusk: A Wave of Words across the UK

Originating in Greenwich, on the Prime Meridian, and now in its 4th year, The Solstice Shorts Festival  is  going nationwide.

The theme this year is Dusk, that time between day and night when everything changes.

On 21st December we have twelve sites across the UK all reading/singing different material (chosen by Arachne Press, read by actors/ sung by musicians) starting in Ellon, Aberdeenshire and ending In Redruth, Cornwall, taking in key spots in between.

All events BSL Interpreted

Grab Tickets for an event near you: generally by donation, suggested £3, but there are exceptions where this is part of a bigger event.
