Preston’s under-threat Bus Station will be the backdrop for a storytelling event in March.

The building will be a set for acclaimed director and writer Phil Ormrod’s new performance An Hour Before The End Of the World.

The sp0ken word piece is centred around two old people in a cafe who are an hour away from the end of the world and watch apocalyptical events unfold.

A Preston based grime and drum n’ bass MC collective Shotta TV will be the hosts for the evening, taking the audience from one performance to another around the bus station.

Live poetry and readings will come from Manchester’s Shamshad Khan and new prose from Preston author David Hartley.

The show, commissioned by They Eat Culture, takes from on Saturday 23 March.

There will be two showings, one at 6.30pm and another at 8.30pm.

Early bird tickets are £4, and after that £7 and £5 for concessions.

Tickets available from The Continental on South Meadow Lane.
