As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, it is the perfect time to enjoy a good book. For our new festival, Autumn Reads, we are inviting you to join us to explore Derek Jarman's Modern Nature. 

We are encouraging everyone to start reading Modern Nature in the build up to the festival. We want you to dive in and discover this special text. To help you on your journey we have put together a resource pack to get you started.  In a handy downloadable PDF you will find information about Derek Jarman and his home in Dungeness, some insightful questions and conversation starters, and a list of links to articles, films and more.
