Letters Live first took place in December 2013 at the Tabernacle in London and quickly established itself as a very powerful and dynamic event format that attracted outstanding talents to performing remarkable letters in front of a live audience. Inspired by Shaun Usher’s international best-selling Letters of Note series, 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.
Letters Live returns to London’s iconic Freemasons’ Hall, one of the finest Art Deco buildings in Britain.
The team have announced a bumper cast of performers confirmed to take part in the run at London’s Freemason’s Hall from 10-15th March.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Caitlin Moran, Dominic West, Emiliana Torrini, Geoffrey Palmer, Gillian Anderson, Hanif Kureishi, Ian McKellen, James Rhodes, Jarvis Cocker, John Bishop, Jude Law, Juliet Stevenson, Lemn Sissay, Louise Brealey, Mariella Frostrup, Matt Berry, Meera Syal, Nitin Sawhney, Olivia Colman, Omid Djalili, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, Riz Ahmed, Russell Brand, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Shami Shakrabarti, Toby Jones and Tom Odell. Many more names are still to be announced; each show’s line up will remain a secret until the night itself.
Performed by a remarkable and surprise cast each night, Letters Live is a unique event that is heartbreaking, euphoric, hilarious and inspiring in equal measure. Those who have previously attended Letters Live will know how memorable these evenings are. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each show are channeled towards a number of carefully selected literacy charities to support the important work they do.
Evening shows - Doors 18:30, Show 19:30 - Duration 2 hours 30 minutes with interval.
