Words on Wheels @ Westquay

Have you ever listened to a comedian on a bus? Watched a live show, or taken part in an outdoor poetry contest? Words on Wheels is your chance!

Four vintage buses – creating 7 stages – will be pulling up outside Westquay South, and an army of poets, comedians, and storytellers from across the city and surrounding areas will set up camp for the afternoon, on stages hosted by VOICE fm, the AND guide, and Unity 101.  Southampton rapper Lord Lav will be hip-hopping, and Bournemouth’s Carrie Carrie will be delivering a set of stunning Spoken Word, as well as a little Pandamonium. Outdoors there will be a set by the Southampton Ukelele Jam, a live poetry contest. Outside, look out for the pirate! And while you’re looking for him, listen out for the fantastic Ukelele Jam! … and on the ‘We Make Southampton’ bus – you can make record a video your Southampton Story.
