Alice’s Adventures Underground – February 2016

Lewis Carroll’s exquisite manuscript book is one of the great treasures of both English literature and the British Library. It tells the story of Alice in a form close to the world- famous published version and, with The British Library, we were delighted to host a live reading of the original text, which has almost never been heard in public.

and with live music played and composed by Gary Carpenter.
