An Evening of Words and Music featuring Polly Samson and David Gilmour


Polly Samson and David Gilmour b&w

POSTPONED. This event will now to take place on Wednesday 9 September. Original tickets are still valid. If ticket holders cannot attend the new date, please contact us to arrange a refund.

Join Polly Samson and friends to launch her new novel A Theatre for Dreamers at an evening of words and music.

This special event will feature Polly Samson in conversation with journalist Rosie Boycott, readings, film and live music, including a new song Yes, I Have Ghosts written by David Gilmour and Polly Samson.

The audience will be transported to the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, and a world dancing on the edge of revolution, where a circle of poets, painters, writers and musicians live tangled lives. It’s a story of utopian dreams and innocence lost, of the troubled King and Queen of Bohemia, Charmian Clift and George Johnson, of a young poet named Leonard Cohen, and his Marianne; and of Erica Hart, an 18-year-old in search of answers.

Ticket price includes a signed first edition of A Theatre For Dreamers and an exclusive portrait of Polly Samson and David Gilmour taken on Hydra and signed by them both.

Suitable for age 16 and over (advisory)
