Letters Live at Union Chapel

7th - 9th March 2018

On March 7th, 8th and 9th of 2018, following two sold-out nights in July 2017 during which audiences were treated to captivating performances from the likes of Colin Firth, Michael Palin, Noma Dumezweni, Taron Egerton, Rob Brydon, Amanda Abbington, and many others, Letters Live returned to London’s iconic Union Chapel to once again bring letters to life.

Over the course of these three unique evenings, the pulpit was graced by, in no particular order, Amanda Abbington, Louise Brealey, Ophelia Lovibond, Mariella Frostrup, Gina Miller, Helen McCrory, Sophie Hunter, Ayobami Adebayo, Juno Dawson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Elizabeth Debicki, Damian Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Culshaw, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Ian McShane, Tony Robinson, Noel Fielding, Sinead Cusack, Sue Perkins, Celia Imrie, Rose McGowan, John Bishop, Ade Edmonson, Julian Clary, Matt Berry, Olivia Colman, Niamh McGrady, Sharon Horgan, Jeremy Corbyn, Meera Syal, Jarvis Cocker, and Nick Cave, all of whom helped to breathe life into correspondence from all walks of life and take the audiences on an emotional and unforgettable journey through time.
