After a long Covid-induced hiatus, Letters Live will be making its 2021 and Roundhouse debut on Wednesday 28 July to celebrate letters through the live performance of written correspondence like never before.

Letters Live is a 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 you never know who is going to take to the stage or what letter they are going to bring alive. The result is a glorious event like no other and a truly unforgettable journey through time.

For in-person performances at The Last Word Festival, Covid-safety measures will be in place in accordance to government guidelines. All performances have gone on sale with social-distancing in place between bubbles (a minimum of 1 metre) and you will be required to wear a mask. We will update you as government guidance changes – this could mean the venue upgrades to full seating with no social distancing.
