Take a promenade across Caversham Lock and re-discover View Island, surrounding yourself with the watery words of poetry, prose and song from performances of the past. With a map and individual audio equipment, take a secret journey around View Island whilst you are immersed in classic and contemporary texts, chosen to reflect specific locations on the island. Sit under the bowers of an old yew tree, traverse across the weir, shelter in the glade, wrapped in theatrical echoes.


As part of Reading On Thames Festival 2017 we would like to make Echoes Around View Island available at any time. To experience this thought provoking adventure for one, download the MP3 files and illustrated map and embark on your journey.
