Letters Live

Inspired by Shaun Usher’s international best-selling Letters of Note series and Simon Garfield’s To the Letter, Letters Live is a live celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. Each show always features a completely different array of great performers, reading remarkable letters written over the centuries and from around the world.

One of the joys of Letters Live is that one never knows who is going to take to the stage or what letter they are going to bring alive.

I remember reading about it last year – after the event – so it was too late to go. I immediately signed up to their newsletter and to my delight last week, they emailed to say they are doing it again in the Autumn – and newsletter readers could buy tickets in a presale, so I’ve nabbed four.

This is the most extraordinary sounding event. Time Out says “Clear your diaries” for it.

The likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliet Stevenson, Ian McKellen, Kylie Minogue, Russell Brand, Caitlin Moran, Tom Hiddleston, Stephen Fry, Jude Law and Sir Ben Kingsley deliver unique and extraordinary performances.

The last time I checked there were still tickets available so hurry and come – on for five nights only!
