Kickstarting Solstice Shorts 2019

It’s the time of year when we fundraise for Solstice Shorts Festival. This year our theme is Time and Tide.

Fortunately, although it is a lot of work for us, it is fun for YOU.

Come and Sing!

London Sea Shanty Collective, who will be performing at the Greenwich session of Time and Tide, are running a sea shanty workshop for us on Saturday 23rd December at our usual singing workshop spot, St Hilda’s Church Hall, in Crofton Park. No experience necessary! If you are coming to the festival there might be an opportunity to join in! Lots more details here

And there’s a Kickstarter campaign, with lots of daft rewards, and some at least notionally useful. For example, get a copy of the special limited edition anthology of poems and stories, which will not be available to the general public, they will get their own version (just as lovely, but different) in March. lots more info here

We’ll be hilighting other extraordinary rewards over the coming weeks. It’s all or nothing funding, and counts towards match funding, without which we will not get funding from the Arts Council. A bit of a dominoes situation…
