The Cultural Quarter in Southampton
Is the new place to go,
there's the Nuffield and the Hansard,
no longer just Nando's
It opened last Friday
with dancing and a fireworks display,
Southamptonians are delighted
they've waited many years for this day.
There'll be poetry, plays
and art installations
and ideas a plenty
to inspire cultural conversation.
The Shadow Factory play
is about the Second World War
the cast is packed with celebrities
and starts galore.
There's a programme
including the 451 poetry night,
at last after years of anticipation
we can finally join in this celebration.
