The Mansio launches at Hexham Book Festival

Posted by

A travelling ‘Roman ruin’-cum-performance space is to be launched at Hexham Book Festival, and ten writers, including Lemn Sissay, Colette Bryce, David Almond and Daljit Nagra, have created new works to be performed inside it. Centring around the idea of ‘borders and frontiers’, the installation will tour various locations across Hadrian’s Wall, including Arbeia Roman Fort, South Shields from 30 April–5 May and Senhouse Museum, Maryport, 28 May–2 June. A full programme and more information about the Mansio is available at
