The Last Word 2021 has announced the first ever digital broadcast of Letters Live.

Inspired by Shaun Usher’s Letters of Note, Letters Live celebrates the power of literary correspondence.


As part of The Last Word Festival 2021, Letters Live will have its very first digital broadcast, exclusively shown on Saturday, 31 July at 7:30PM.

Taking place in person at the Roundhouse in Camden, this is the only opportunity to catch the phenomenal surprise line-up from the comfort of your own home.

Letters Live is part of The Last Word Festival which will be making more content available online to those not able to attend in person.

Other highlights include the Roundhouse Poetry Slam Final: Watch this electric event and cast your vote for the audience winner!

Meanwhile, former UK poetry slam champion Adam Kammerling will premiere his new poetry and dance film online to coincide with his latest book release. With a cohort of incredible, dynamic artists, Seder examines intergenerational trauma and the rituals we use to make connection.

Ruth Hawkins, Senior Producer for Roundhouse, commented: “We are so close to opening the Roundhouse for The Last Word Festival and we cannot wait to see audiences through our doors across a week packed with electric performances from both emerging and established artists.

“The digital programme of the festival is incredibly important to us as a venue, ensuring our festival reaches everyone who can’t or is not ready to return to in-person events, which we intend to continue into the future.”
