The William Morris Gallery continues its series of late events with Utopia, which explores the possibility of a perfect existence based on finding pleasure in nature.

Inspired by William Morris’s idealistic romance News From Nowhere, the night, which is co-curated by Vine Collective, also marks the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s Utopia. It features an impressive line-up of award winning authors, with music and hands-on craft activities.

The evening features a performance by author of Submarine and Wild Abandon Joe Dunthorne, and thoughts on the utopian possibilities of Epping Forest with writer and editor of The Quietus Luke Turner, who is currently writing a book on the woodlands and its evolving history.

Artists and authors Henningham Family Press team up with artist Eddie Farrell to create improvised art composition Gainful Unemployment, and there will be dystopian and utopian music from Mark Pilkington of Strange Attractor.
