Inspired by Elizabeth Bishop’s poem ‘Filling Station’, Ella Frears has written a short sequence of poems in response to motorway service stations between Cornwall (where she grew up) and London (where she lives now).
In April, Ella, Tom and Alban set off on a road trip visiting sixteen service stations and two Travelodges - talking to employees, customers and those who identify as motorway service station fans.
Ella will read from her sequence alongside a screening of a new short film by artist Naomi Frears.
