Letters Live




Letters Live is coming to the iconic surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall for the first time ever this October, and it promises to be the most dynamic and powerful one yet.

Inspired by Shaun Ushers international best-selling 'Letters of Note' series and Simon Garfields 'To the Letter', Letters Live has since December 2013 been a live celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. Each show always features a completely different array of great performers, reading remarkable letters from all around the world written over the centuries.

Who is going to take to the stage or what letters they are going to bring to life is kept secret until the day, but previous shows have seen stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kylie Minogue, Russell Brand, Caitlin Moran, Tom Hiddleston, Cynthia Erivo, Sally Hawkins, Stephen Fry, Zawe Ashton, Jude Law, Olivia Colman, Noma Dumezweni, Colin Firth, Jeremy Corbyn, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker and Sir Ben Kingsley deliver unique and extraordinary performances.
