Shoreham Wordfest 2017

Shoreham Wordfest Ropetackle Modernism Sussex

Ropetackle is delighted to support Shoreham’s seventh annual festival of words – Shoreham Wordfest – running from Thursday 28th September – Thursday 19th October 2017. Enjoy a range of events featuring local luminaries, national authors, and international performers.

This year’s Wordfest looks back at the impact of radical writers, artists, and thinkers who lived in Sussex during the early 20th century and were so influential on the Modernist movement.

Featuring a play about the life of iconic photographer and model Lee Miller, we also look at Sussex ‘Moderns’ today: new writing including ‘An English Guide To Birdwatching’ by Nicholas Royle, TEEN People – a comic play by Simon Messingham and Mark Gatiss, plus a discussion on how to make sense of our changing and challenging world with Raphael Behr – political columnist for The Guardian.

For children and families we have a wonderful play based on Michael Morpurgo’s story ‘Why The Whales Came’. Cabaret des Noctambules will be a riotous evening of fun. And our finale, as always, will be the new and improved poetry and short story slam. There will also be an exhibition of images from the Farley Arts Trust in the Ropetackle Café.

A fantastic feast of readings, talks, walks, song and fun awaits – we look forward to enjoying it with you all!

As well as Ropetackle, Wordfest events will be taking place all around Shoreham. For more information, please visit the Ropetackle or Shoreham Wordfest website at: www.shorehamwordfest.com

Tickets for all Wordfest events are available from the Ropetackle box office: in person, over the telephone, and online (below).
