Now in its 6th Year, Solstice Shorts Festival is once again being held on 21st December – and this year it’s a weekend, so we aren’t limited in the amount of time we have to fill with short stories, poems and song.
This year our theme is
TIME and TIDE
Performed live by an actor (or the author) historically tinged stories, poems and songs of making a living on or beside the water, and making new lives over the water – immigration, emigration, diaspora.
We will be performing in seven port towns on coasts and on tidal rivers, in four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Portugal.
