A celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. We organise live events where remarkable letters are read by a diverse array of outstanding performers.
“Letters Live makes us pause and imagine the lives behind the letters read and the circumstances of their origin. It’s a privilege to read this most ancient of communications live to an audience. A truly inspiring event.”
“With nothing more than the power of words, and the beauty of human voice, Letters Live will blow your mind and touch your soul. My favourite show in town.”
“As a devout atheist I find Letters Live the closest I’ve come to a religious experience. There’s something deeply personal and confessional about sharing a letter with people for one time, and one time only. I enjoy it so much, I’d happily do it every night for the rest of my life. It’s so life affirming.”
Letters Live’s debut event of 2020 was held on Valentine’s Day at Shoreditch Town Hall, London
