Ghost River: Southampton Stories

6th July 2019


The Art House , 178 Above Bar Street

Information: 023 8023 8582

Fresh from their poetical promenade of the city, local poetry collective Ghost River return to take you on an indoor journey through the ages of Southampton, along the river from source to sea.

Join us on a journey through bankrupt canals, the ribs of dinosaurs and the quiet carriage, via blue triangulated dots with the bluetoothed man, a she-buzzard, original lions, Malcolm of The Saints, Mr Whippy, eels, mullet and flatfish.

The evening will start with an open mic session, sign up on the door. Accessibility: the event will be held upstairs.


Ghost River are:

Anita Foxall, Duncan Green, Dave Hubble and Damian O'Vitch.

**Accessibility info:-**

Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)

Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comfortable seating is provided.  We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry

**Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?**

Events are open to all ages unless otherwise stated, however, please note that our mission is to provide creative activity primarily to adults, therefore most of our programme is aimed at 16 years and over.  Performances may include stronger language.

Life drawing classes are open to over 18s only.
