The Literary Salon


Opening Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm

The Literary Salon returns for its fourth year and first at the Bas. This popular event, launched in 2016, has gone from strength to strength and this year we are pushing the envelope further; including musicians for the first time. Writers will birth a creative text to be passed to either a visual artist or a musician for reinterpretation. The result? A mixed media extravaganza of visual and sound pieces.
