An Illustrated talk by David Parker

Laurie Lee: The Lost Recordings

Fri 21 Sep, 6:00pm at Copper Auditorium

Tickets: £8-£6 , approx running time: 60mins (no interval)

Reflections on love, landscape, childhood, poetry music and much more from one of the the great English writers of the 20th Century.

In 1994, the year of his 80th birthday, Laurie Lee shared his memories of an ‘eventful’ early life in a series of interviews with the film maker David Parker. It was quite a coup, Laurie did not ‘do’ television!  He talked with sublime eloquence about his life in the Slad Valley, and the influence of the landscapes and memories of his childhood on his subsequent writing.  In this session David will introduce the recordings, and show the 30 minute film he made with Laurie.  There will be time for questions and comments.
