Posting Letters to the Moon: Lucy Fleming & Simon Williams
Tuesday 12th June
Town Hall 7:30 pm | £12 R
Posting Letters To The Moon is a delightful, funny and very touching recount of life during the early 1940s with readings of wartime letters between actress Celia Johnson, Oscar nominated for ‘Brief Encounter’, and her explorer and writer husband Peter Fleming, brother of James Bond creator Ian Fleming.
The letters - read by their actress daughter Lucy Fleming (Miranda Elliott in The Archers) and her husband Simon Williams (Justin Elliott in The Archers) - are bursting with love and affection. We hear how Celia coped with a large isolated house packed with evacuated children, rationing, learning to drive a tractor, becoming an auxiliary police woman in Henley-on-Thames, and holidays in Cornwall trying to surf. And there’s lots of back-stage gossip too!
There will be a bar available.
