“We are itching to finally bring Letters Live to Wilderness and determined to seduce the crowds with a stellar cast of performers reading some of the greatest correspondence ever to have been written. To be doing so in such a gorgeous setting is the icing on an already irresistible cake.” ~ Letters Live
Letters Live are coming to Wilderness for the very first time. As headliners of the festival’s Talks and Debates programme, Letters Live will descend upon The Atrium to delight the audience with, as ever, a cast of readers and letters designed to surprise and delight.
Letters Live has been wowing audiences since its low-key inception in 2013, and to this day its mission has remained the same: to harness the unrivalled power of old-fashioned correspondence and breathe new life into the stories contained within letters with the help of an ever-changing cast of some of the most acclaimed performing talent from around the world.
Past Letters Live performers have included such luminaries as Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Colman, Jude Law, Juliet Stevenson, Russell Brand, Kylie Minogue, Gillian Anderson, Nick Cave, Thandie Newton, Riz Ahmed, Oscar Isaac and Jarvis Cocker.
Letters Live is inspired by Shaun Usher’s best-selling Letters of Note, and by Simon Garfield’s To the Letter.
Expect absolute greatness.
