This image is my attempt to mark the event called "Station Stories" at Piccadilly train and tram station from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st May.
From the Media Release:
"You are at Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station - You are wearing headphones - You are with a group all wearing headphones - The station is crowded, people rushing everywhere - You can hear someone speaking in your headphones. She is telling you a story - The reader of the story is somewhere in the crowd, she is reading the story now, it's live - You try to pick her out from the crowd - Eventually she comes into view - She continues to tell the story. She talks to rail travelers around her. They don't know she is telling a story. They don't know she is transmitting live - They don't know about us - This is story telling with a difference - This is performance with a difference - This is Station Stories."

From platform to platform, café to café and shop to shop, six writers take you on a creative trip at Piccadilly station and read specially commissioned stories inspired by the station and the people who use it and work there.
