About us.

Sum Tyms Bytin Sum Tyms Bit was an online ‘sum poasyum’ or programme of talks, screenings and creative responses inspired by Russell Hoban’s Riddley Walker (1980)Set in post-apocalyptic East Kent and written in a futuristic Kentish dialect, this novel continues to exert a powerful influence over contemporary readers, writers and critics. Canterbury is at the heart of Riddley’s world – so where better to have hosted a virtual celebration of its legacy from?

The materials on this blog will remain as an archaeological report on the events, but we hope to excavate again in due course.
