The Pathhead Phone Box

Pathhead joined BT’s ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ scheme in 2018. Since then, this ancient communication vessel which stands proud at the side of the A68, has been gaining itself a reputation as an Extraordinary Entity; A Powerful Place where imagination and creativity merge with sharing and caring, and where an assortment of virtual and real-life delights manifest themselves in unique and wonderful ways!


Used by day as a swap shop, 'The Box' (as it is becoming affectionately known) is often exploding with anything from culinary delights, freshly grown fruit and vegetables to Halloween costumes (and everything in between!). 


In addition, it has the capacity to transform into the smallest venue in the world where some of the world’s finest wordsmiths and musicians do their thing. This year will see some of this come to light, in the very first 'Advent In The Box', a daily offering of Pathhead talent emerging from The Box each day of December.
