Sunday 6 March, 7pm

Dame Harriet Walter, Bill Paterson, Matthew Macfadyen and Ben Kingsley join other stars in a special English PEN Benefit evening to mark the handover of the PEN Presidency from Lisa Appignanesi to Gillian Slovo.

Actors read from the books, plays and poems that have inspired the two authors over the years. From Pooh to Portnoy, from Carol Ann Duffy to Salman Rushdie, their inspirations include some of the treasures of world literature and some of its best kept secrets.

Directed by Timberlake Wertenbaker and Matthew Lloyd.

Tickets: £25. All money raised will go to support English PEN’s work.
