Wessex Week: Wessex Words

28th October 2022

7.30-9.30pm

Join Tony Burke, John O’Brien and Lesley Saunders for an evening of readings – funny, serious, light-hearted, romantic, dramatic – inspired by Wessex, its history and its mythology.

From curious Anglo-Saxon charms and riddles to the sparkling prose of Jane Austen, from the heartfelt poetry of Thomas Hardy to the dark thoughts of Thomas Hobbes, and from epic to haiku, we invite you to discover new writers and to hear again some of the well-loved ones.
