This Spring, London is getting all literary as we celebrate some of our country’s most esteemed writers. Literary Greats at Broadgate is a dedication to several big authors with big anniversary’s this year, and the art lovers of North-East London are getting ready to celebrate with a plethora of music, theatre and dining experiences – all of which will be held live at Broadgate Circle over the coming months.
Performances and pop-ups will be appearing all around the Liverpool Street area to commemorate Charlotte Bronte’s birthday (21st April), William Shakespeare ‘s death (400th anniversary on 23rd April), 150 years since Beatrix Potter’s birth (28th July) and the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth on 13th September.
Coming up at Literary Greats…
The Broadgate Reading Room opens today (Monday 25th April) until Friday 20th May in Finsbury Avenue Square; offering bookworms a homely new space to relax, read and feel inspired between 10am-5pm. Bring your own book or hunt out new ones, or perhaps you’d prefer to sit in on one of their creative talks or book classes?
Poetry fans will be able to enjoy a chilled lunch hour at Broadgate Circle on Tuesday 26th April and Wednesday 4th May. Some of London’s freshest lyrical artists will entertain al-fresco diners and passers-by in memory of some of the most important poets of our time. Check out Apple & Snakes’ Jawdance.
