Step into the Live Poetry Jukebox for an intimate and magical experience of poetry, visual art and performance! This interactive installation works like a music jukebox, only with poetry. Look at the beautiful ‘library’ of jars, containing miniature artworks connected to a poem. Choose one and listen to a live performance of it! Stay an hour or 5 mins, the choice is yours.
Ages 5+. Free - just come along. In the Lucy Room at the Oxford Playhouse.
