Switchboard II

November 21, 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The second in a series of three events exploring the literary legacy of the telephone, this pop-up event will take place next to Dialling In, a disused Nottingham telephone box refashioned as a coffee shop. Members of the public will be invited to enter a phone booth to leave their own answer machine messages, reflecting on the significance of the telephone in their lives and imagining calls yet to be made.

Selected extracts from these recordings may be used with participants’ permission during ‘Switchboard III’, a live literary event on 23 November.

Led by Dr Sarah Jackson, New Generation Thinker and winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry.

No booking required


This event is part of the series How to lose and find yourself in words.
