'Found theatre and poetry: disrupting the everyday' is part of the Being Human Festival 2017, a collaboration between Westminster Law School and the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies.

Disrupt your working day with a lunchtime visit to London’s most famous ‘lost’ theatre – the subterranean home of the former ‘Soho Poly’, a radical pioneer of lunchtime theatre in the 1970s-80s.

Visitors will be introduced to the hidden space, including an exhibition of rare memorabilia by original artistic director Fred Proud. They will then have an opportunity to experience a newly-commissioned piece of digital lunchtime theatre from award-winning collective Hannah Bruce and Company (Museum and Heritage Awards nominees, 2017).

The event will also involve live poetry readings, curated by spoken-word artist Mike Garry, artist-in-residence at Westminster Law School.
