In Place and Time: Britten And T.S. Eliot at Southwark Cathedral

A special evening of spoken word and music, celebrating the work of two of the great artists of the 20th century: Benjamin Britten and T.S. Eliot.

The event, held in the beautiful setting of Southwark Cathedral, represents a unique collaboration between City of London Sinfonia and Faber & Faber to mark the 90th anniversary of the publisher, with whom both Benjamin Britten and T.S. Eliot were profoundly linked.
