Essex Book Festival


We are delighted to be part of the 2018 Essex Book Festival.  Jenny Uglow will be talking about her book, Edward Lear – A Life of Art and Nonsense

Acclaimed biographer, Jenny Uglow, brings us a joyful and moving appreciation of Edward Lear’s extraordinary life and work, from troubled childhood to striving artist.  She tracks his swooping moods, passionate friendships and restless travels.  His ‘nonsenses’ are elegantly unpicked, his complex poetic genius revealed.

Tickets are available from Mercury Theatre 01206 573948

Tickets £10.00 and £8.00 for under 27’s
