Solstice Shorts

A celebration of National Short Story Day, of the Winter Solstice, and of the narrative power of folk music; bringing together story, poetry and song on the theme of Time, on the Greenwich Meridian – where better?

  35. Although I am a Londoner born and bred, I haven’t been to Greenwich since I was a child. My great aunt lived in Lewisham and she and my nan used to take me to Greenwich regularly. I live in Norfolk now and only occasionally manage to get down to visit my daughter in Clapham. I would love to attend Solstice Shorts but can’t afford the train fare at the moment. Will you be posting photos and videos of the event?

    • Hi Kim
      yes we will be videoing and recording the whole thing – rather relying on the audience to photograph as I can’t manage photos video and hosting all in one go! Expect videos up on youtube in January some time.
      best wishes
      Cherry
