An evening With Edith Sitwell - 14th March At 7.30PM

Thurs. 14th March at 7.30pm

An evening with Dame Edith Sitwell

“From Scarborough Town to Keats Grove”

An evening to introduce us to one of our most famous literary residents

"I am not eccentric. It's just that I am more alive than most people. I am an unpopular electric eel set in a pond of catfish.

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.

I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it."

Dame Edith Sitwell, who lived in Hampstead (in Greenhill and Keats Grove) in her later years, was one of the leading figures of the 20th century literary scene.

A highly regarded poet, she was a member of a most distinguished family and was regarded as something of an eccentric. Her best known work is Façade which was set to music by Sir William Walton and is still frequently performed by an actor with an orchestra.

Written and devised by LEE MONTAGUE, the evening includes  biographical details and readings by DAME JANET SUZMAN
