Litro Live! A World Book Night Celebration on 23 April: Words, Music and Friends

Litro Live! Wednesday, April 23rd at Dartmouth House, Mayfair London

Litro will be hosting the first of its Litro Live! Events for 2014 with The English-Speaking Union at Dartmouth House, Mayfair.

The evening will be a jammed-packed serving of words, music and conversation, taking place on Wednesday 23 April as part of World Book Night Celebrations at Dartmouth House.

As well as giving you an opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals, you can connect with some of London’s hottest emerging literary talent and enjoy some great music.

We’ll be welcoming on the night Glen Duncan, Emma Jane Unsworth, Charlie Hill and Maia Jenkins, with guest musical performances from Lucinda Belle, and Benin City. The night will also welcome Naomi Foyle, who will be hosting her book club read: Astra.

Litro Live! will be welcoming back music from avant-garde harpist and Rockabilly Gypsy Jazz pioneer Lucinda Belle ahead of her latest album release.

We also welcome Benin City (Q Magazine call the band “A sultry piece of afro dub blues”). Named after a Nigerian capital, Benin City is a fused genre band fronted by Joshua Idehen (vocals) – previously collaborated with Hyperdub’s LV – Theo Buckingham (drums) and Tom Leaper (tenor saxophone/synths/samples).

In keeping with the spirit of World Book Night, there will also be plenty of book giveaways on offer – so bring yourself and a bag or two!
