Preston Bus Station: A Journey to the End of the World

Posted on - 9th February, 2013 - 11:53am | Author - | Posted in - Arts, Preston Bus Station, What's On in Preston




A unique spoken word performance at Preston’s iconic bus station on Saturday 23rd March 2013.

Northern Elements, a project funded by Arts Council England, has commissioned They Eat Culture and Lancashire Writing Hub to stage a spoken word one-off event at the controversial Preston Bus Station (and car park).

The central themes will be ‘moments of life’, ‘apocalypse’, ‘death and afterlife’ – and maybe even what happens to bus stations when they die. A central piece has been commissioned from writer Phil Ormrod, with support provided by ARC in Stockton-on-Tees.

There will be an MC, three support artists, the Noize Choir and tour guides taking part in the event which will culminate with Phil Omrod’s An Hour Before the End of the World performance.

There will be two performances over the evening.

More information nearer the time.

Tickets: £7, £5 concessions, Early Bird £4
Available from The Continental and Preston Visitor Information centre.
