Enjoy an evening of talks and performances celebrating literature ‘off the page’. From stage and screen adaptations through to artwork inspired by literary classics, this event explores the diverse ways in which literature continues to be adapted and transformed for new audiences.

Featuring talks from Royal Society of Literature Fellows, Helen Edmundson, Deborah Moggach and Timberlake Wertenbaker,  a workshop designed by Professor Catherine Boyle on staging the translated text and a display by AVM Curiosities and Type Tasting.

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
