A Place to be Real Together

Reading Allowed - Reading Aloud CANCELLED

Time to read, time to be read to


Mon 1 Jun - Fri 5 Jun 2020


Space is available on this event! :-D


Alongside our Dorset Art Weeks exhibition (open to the public 11-5 daily) we invite you to join us for five days of relaxing residential when reading is not only allowed but positively encouraged.


What you read and for how long is up to you! Maybe settle with those books you keep meaning to get round to? You’ll find yourself in community with other keen readers, with chances to exchange ‘good read’ recommendations.


Also, Tony Jaques, Othona warden and former Radio 4 broadcaster, loves to read aloud. He will offer us some engrossing listening in a session of mixed poetry and prose each afternoon or evening. Plus, for those who wish, a coaching session to improve our own reading aloud skills.


(One evening you can also Meet the Artists as some Othona creatives talk about their practice in art media ranging from textiles to digital.)
