letters live

last year we had a really enjoyable evening at the freemason’s hall in covent garden for letters live – an evening of different artists reading letters – there were letters from Elvis Presley, Ted Hughes, the last letter from Kurt Cobain to his wife and charmingly a series of letters written by an english soldier, made a prisoner of war to his friend . there were letters that were inspiring, funny, poignant and sad – but a reminder of how letter writing was our only form of correspondence years ago and is sadly a dying art.. this year there is a great line up of actors and writers reading, can’t wait – its on all this weekend.

what was really stunning was seeing inside the beautiful art deco interior of the freemason’s hall – if you dont manage to see it at an event, its sometimes open during open house week.

  1. That sounds like my perfect evening…must look it up! We went to St brides church last year and saw rick wakeman give a talk about his life, then he played morning has broken on the piano….It was the best evening out we had last year, stunning to hear that piece of music played in St brides church….and the ticket was £10!!
