Part of the 'Letters Live' event at the Hay Festival 2014. Recorded in the Tata Tent on 31st May 2014. Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey read letters between WWII lovers Chris and Besse. This letter is taken from the book 'To the Letter' by Simon Garfield
This was the second of two pairs of letters they read. In these letters Chris and Besse have met up for the first time, obviously had a 'good time' (as Benedict's reaction indicates at the start!!)and they begin to make future plans together. (apparently Chris and Besse went to Bournemouth - see part 1 for why that's funny!) Stick with it to the end - they skip off hand in hand!!
This was the fourth letter Benedict read and the fourth letter Louise read of the Letters Live event on this day.
So sorry its a bit wobbly at times but the chairs were quite rocky!
I do not own the copyright, and thank Hay Festival, Letters Live, Shaun Usher, Simon Garfield, Cannongate books, the readers and all behind the scenes for the most wonderful, enlighteining event. Who knew Letters could rock quite so much?! If you've not read the books they are DEFINATELY worth a read - Letters of Note by Shaun Usher and To the Letter by Simon Garfield.
