“If you came this way…”


T S ELIOT AT LITTLE GIDDING


An inspirational day of talks, readings, and discussions near the dull façade, and the tombstone—all made famous by

Eliot’s great poem.


The annual Little Gidding Lecture, sponsored by the T S Eliot International Summer School, will be delivered by Robert Von Hallberg, Professor of English Language and Literature at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California.


Michael Hrebeniak, college lecturer at Wolfson and Magdalene, Cambridge, will talk about “The Epoch of Space: The Waste Land as Collage”.


Mary Ann Lund, Associate Professor in Renaissance English Literature at the University of Leicester, will present, “Meditating on Little Gidding, Part 1”.


An annual tradition continues: ‘My favourite Eliot’, with contributions from the audience.


The programme concludes with Ali Smith reading “Little Gidding.” Sebastian Barry has described Smith, the author of ten novels and five collections of short stories, as “Scotland’s Nobel laureate-in-waiting.”


The Festival takes place in the garden of Ferrar House at Little Gidding, in Cambridgeshire. In addition to the programme of Eliot-related events, morning coffee, a two-course buffet lunch, and afternoon tea will be served. Doors open at 10:30am, and the Festival concludes at 4:30pm.

Tickets:

£39 Family ticket (two adults & two children)

£16 adult / £6 u17


The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-male troupe in the atmospheric setting of Lyveden for a bicycle-powered production like none other of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. In typical HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter when a group of soldiers returns from the war to a household in Messina causing the kindling of new love interests and the re-kindling of old rivalries. There’s plotting, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.


This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!


We perform whatever the weather: a performance will only be cancelled on Health & Safety grounds, judgement of which lies with the event management team on the day.
