Hot off the letter press

: valuable information directly to you about us and everything we have been doing. We aspire to fill this page with brilliance and wonder, though, on slow day, we may just end up reporting about the ducks on the ice. Whatever news we do print, one thing you can be sure of, is that we certainly will not be attempting to fill your heads with pointless opinionated political news casts.

Hedgespoken is a travelling off-grid theatre project based in Devon, UK. 

Help the brilliant Tom Hirons and Rima Staines turn a beautiful old Bedford RL truck into a spectacular venue for starlit storytellings, vagabond puppet circus and far more. 

Full details can be found on their Hedgespoken crowdfunder page. But don't hang around, they only have 12 days of fundraising left!

If you are as excited about this project as we are, then please do pass on their film  link to anyone who you think would appreciate it.: 

Rima and Tom need to raise an estimated £25,000 in total to make this vision become a reality, and they cannot do it alone. This is where you get to play a part in their unfolding story by pledging what you can to make this dream happen, and by sharing this campaign far and wide! It is very exciting to think about the possibilities of a project like this being funded by the people to whom it will mean the most - the true grass-roots pledgers! 

This dream is being made out of lots of small donations from lots of people who believe in this magic as much as we do!

In fact, the wondrous Amelias Mag have even featured an interview with Tom and Rima. Follow this interview link to hear them speak about the inspirations and influences behind their project.

London's Litro Magazine Reviews Time:
'An ambitious collection of short fiction, poetry and art, Lazy Gramophone's Time dresses up genre-bending experimentalism in cinemascope, projecting it backwards and upside-down.'

If you choose to stay with us all day then you will be treated to a number of Performances By the Book's Contributors (see timings below); though should you find yourself otherwise engaged, do feel free to drop by at any point during the day - even if only to have say hi, catch a performance and share a quick drink.

About the Time Project.

Time is a vast collaborative book project containing short stories, poems and artwork by fifty-five contributors. Since the project's inception, the idea has been to create an environment where independent writers and artists could come together in order to share their work. The result of this endeavour is a collection of stories, images and poems based around the theme of time, its pages placing particular focus upon the relationship between words and pictures. By sharing in this way we hope to inspire each other as well as those around us, to draw a diverse audience and so help to illuminate the work of alternative artists and writers everywhere.
