William Morris in the moon

The Night House

  • 12 May 2016 6:30-9:30pm
Sorry, fully booked

For William Morris, our award-winning gallery was once just ‘home’ – so how might it have felt to look out on the moon reflected in the moat as he climbed the stairs to bed?

Come and find out in our after-hours celebration of the end of the day, with poetry by Joelle Taylor and Dzifa Benson, and music by Darren Hayman.

Forest Poets will read pop-up poems inspired by the Gallery's displays, and there will be a special screening of Beginning to See the Light, atmospheric filmpoems by Raymond Antrobus, Malika Booker, Holly Corfield Carr, Jane Draycott, Caleb Klaces and Richard Price, in collaboration with film-maker Corinne Silva, tracing the arc from high noon to neon-lit midnight.

Curated by the Forest Poets and in partnership with The Poetry Society and Jaybird Live Literature.
