Field Trip

Saturday 15th June 2013

A Re-enactment of Last Year's Field Trip to Portsdown Hill

We will walk in an unconvincing fashion to Fort Nelson where there will be a poetry recital in tunnels beneath the ground (it will be the same bits of Hegemonick as last time). We will then set off on foot towards the Churchillian public house (PO6 3LS). If the weather is fine we will linger at the Northern compound of the underground Oil Fuel Depot (SU623072) for a makeshift picnic. We will fail to capture the attitudes, behaviour and experiences of those who attended the field trip last November. We won’t look like them either. Having failed to embody the past we will proceed to the pub and pretend to socialise.

Meet at: Portchester Station at 11.23am. Those travelling by road should go to Fort Nelson (PO17 6AN), arriving at 12 noon. Fort Nelson is a Royal Armouries museum. There is free parking. (Portchester Station has no car park so don't go there.)

Field Trip

Saturday 24th November 2012

We will go to Portsdown Hill (Hants) to explore how we have internalised the reshaping of geographical features by various forces (political, industrial, military, etc.) and then we will project those features back into the material world to reveal the wider social and economic conflicts they had masked.

Meet at: Portchester Station at 11.23am. Those travelling by road should go to Fort Nelson (PO17 6AN), arriving at 12 noon. Fort Nelson is a Royal Armouries museum. There is free parking. (Portchester Station has no car park so don't go there.)

The EPA & PFC

The Equi-Phallic Alliance and Poetry Field Club deliver propaganda and social activies in the realm of Poesy. The manifesto of the EPA commits them to achieving a free anal clitoris for everyone. The PFC organises field trips, mainly into the countryside around Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester (UK) where we walk about a bit.

The field trips are advertised in The Listening Voice which is a four page newsletter that you can receive by post in the UK (send 6 UK second class stamps and your address to the address here). The newsletters sometimes don't come out very often.

Some events associated with Field Trips and The Listening Voice newsletter have taken place in Josian's Bower. So far these have been so poorly advertised as to be effectively by invitation only.
