Inspiring, insightful and fun, Southlands More Than Words brings local talent and special guests together for a week of Literary and storytelling in the fabulous surroundings of Southlands Arts Centre. Starting on Sunday 22nd September with an Alice In Wonderland family day featuring Puppet show, in situ theatre, storytelling, games and writing activities. The following four evenings of Guest Authors, Film-makers and poetry will be topped off with a grand finale Friday open mic night.
Southlands More Than words #SAMTW celebrates storytelling in all forms and delivers a fantastic package of readings, screenings performances and discussion for a multitude of tastes - including those purist fans of walrus feeding or talking utter nonsense (with or without the Mad Hatter).
