Poets, Robyn Bolam and Lydia Fulleylove, singer-songwriters, JC Grimshaw and Dom Prag, and photographer, Mark Lanigan, have travelled between mainland ports and the Isle of Wight for a year, creating songs, poems and photographs for the Ferry Tales Project and helping fellow ferry travellers to be creatively involved by inviting them to respond to prompts on luggage tags handed out on ferry journeys.

Robyn, Lydia and Dom, with guest poet Maggie Sawkins, also ran workshops for local people in Newport, Lymington and Portsmouth – and even, once, on a ferry!

Together, they have produced a CD of songs, an anthology of poems and images, and an exhibition of photographs by Mark Lanigan with poems and songs by Robyn, Lydia, JC, Dom, Maggie and the Ferry Tales Community, celebrating arrivals and departures on the Island and mainland.

Exhibition continues until 1st July. Normal admission rates apply. Our opening hours are 7 days a week 10am-5pm.
