Letters Live

On March 4th, 5th and 6th 2020 Letters Live will make its 4th appearance at London’s iconic Union Chapel to once again bring letters to life

In March 2019, the Union Chapel last saw Letters Live take to its stage for 3 sold-out shows at which audiences were treated to captivating performances from the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Colman, Thom Yorke, Elif Shafak, Andy Serkis, Edith Bowman, Jordan Stephens and many others.

Over the course of these three unique evenings, Letters Live will bring a diverse array of world-class performers from the stage, screen, music, art and literary worlds to breathe life into correspondence from all walks of life, taking you on an emotional and unforgettable journey through time.

Expect the unexpected, safe in the knowledge that Letters Live will make you appreciate the humble letter like never before.
