Short read: The Literary London Pub Walk.

Long read: Welcome to London Walks’ Saturday evening literary  soirée! The company’s beyond compare: your good selves and the shades of Dickens and Thackeray; Oscar Wilde and G. B. Shaw; Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Circle (who lived in Squares and loved in triangles); S ylvia Plath and Ted Hughes; George Orwell, W. B. Yeats and T. S. Eliot. The venue’s a moveable feast: a procession of handsome Georgian squares; the humming little warren of streets in the Museum quarter; and a couple of the best old pubs in London. The host’s a born raconteur. And depend on it, he’ll stir things a bit – tell you a thing or two about the aforementioned – how they were flesh and blood men and women who lived, loved, laughed, caroused, quarrelled and spun “words so nimble, so full of subtle flame…”. (Food is available.) David requests the pleasure of your company…
