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

20 November 2019Visit websiteBook tickets

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.

The programme interweaves some of T.S. Eliot’s finest verses and Benjamin Britten’s most remarkable music, with readings including Ash Wednesday and Little Gidding, and Britten's Serenade for tenor, horn and strings and Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge.
