Warm up events
Biotik Stage at Eden Sessions
Resident thinkers and others gave a Nowherian twist to the Eden Sessions. Hosting a one-off afternoon event on the Biotik Stage in the beautiful surroundings of Eden Projects’s Mediterranean Biome, ‘Nowhereisland presents’ was an afternoon of spoken word presentations and discussion exploring Nowhereisland with author, Tony White and Radio 4's 'Saturday Live' Poet-in-Residence, Salena Godden. Dane Watkins also ran his Iconikit project and the pop-up chat show Talkaoke got everyone discussing and debating. See more pictures here on flickr.
Ilfracombe Arts College
Following a year of exploring Nowhereisland across the curriculum, students at Ilfracombe Arts College shared the results of their studies during a special Nowhereisland day at the college. Students will continue to support the project in the lead up to, and welcome of, the island in September.

Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival
On its way to meet the island in Weymouth, the Nowhereisland Embassy spent two days at Dorset's annual festival of the Tolpuddle story. Nowhereisland Ambassadors were on hand to guide people through the Embassy objects and information and on Sunday the Nowhereisland banner made by Ed Hall will join the famous procession of banners through the village.
