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 – it started again last night and is on for the rest of the week, so do try to go, its a very entertaining evening.  i am off to see it tonight and can’t wait.
