Ben Osborne, founder of the Woodbridge Festival, said: “We’re delighted to start this residency at the Riverside with a fantastic female led line-up of artists and a poem commissioned in October’s Black History Month.
“In these times, when cinemas have the double hit of films being delayed and audiences being limited, we’re offering a programme that helps keep our cultural networks connected and supports venues in creative ways.

“The Riverside remained open throughout two world wars, but had its doors closed for the first time by the Covid pandemic. If we can, we want to keep its doors open from now.
“We’re very grateful to county councillor Caroline Page for helping us to deliver this and our environmental programme and to Arts Council England for helping us support culture throughout the summer.”
Tickets for the event are available from the Riverside.
