Details of the first Letters Live London events of 2017 have been revealed

Letters Live will be coming to London’s stunning Union Chapel on the 14 and 15 July 2017.

Letters Live, a unique event celebrating old-fashioned correspondence, will be coming to the award-winning working church in Islington. The unforgettable event invites a diverse cast of talented performers to deliver mesmerising recitals of letters.
