A Poem and a Place

Lyttelton, Canterbury, New Zealand
Est. 2.4km / 48 mins / Map

Seven Lyttelton poets take you on an adventure around Lyttelton. Nine places. Nine poems. The voice of Lyttelton actor Tom Trevella will be your guide with music by Jules Marchant. To start the tour, stand outside the Lyttelton Information Centre on Oxford Street. As you follow Tom's instructions, each piece of audio is triggered by your phone's GPS. This works best if you download the tour before starting. There's a little download icon on the right of the cover image above.
