River Voices: Poetry with Robert Powell & Friends

A lively reading from a range of writers inspired by the Ouse and Foss, rivers, streams, canals, rain, and all things watery! Co-hosted by York poets Robert Powell and John Gilham.

River Voices is a Fundraising Event for The Arts Barge Project - many thanks to Robert Powell!

Tickets available from the Great Yorkshire Fringe website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
