Jenny writes: If like me you reckon that Preston is pretty much the end of the world, then you should get to its controversial bus station this Saturday (23rd March). The building hit the headlines last year when plans to demolish it galvanised a campaign to protect it which hit national media. A modernist jewel or a concrete monstrosity? Opinions are divided.
But this Saturday evening, it becomes the venue for a remarkable storytelling event. Members of Preston-based will be your hosts for the evening, leading you from one performance to the next.
Manchester poet Shamshad Khan will be performing, as well as Tyneside’s Noize Choir with a ten minute experimental ‘human-voice-as-instrument’ piece. Members of Preston-based "grime and drum n’ bass" MC collective Shotta TV will act as tour guides from one performance to the next, ending at the Bus Station café. Look out here for a new work by London playwright and director Phil Ormrod - Journey to the End of the World.
It'll be worth the journey to Preston - getting there by bus is easy.
