Dulwich Festival today: Tuesday 16th May

A rare opportunity to hear a performance of Façade, William Walton’s setting of Edith Sitwell’s poem sequence, which caused a scandal in the summer of 1923, when the cultural life of London was dominated by the Sitwells and the Bloomsbury Group. This startling work, performed by The Bloomsbury Ensemble of London with Julie Berry and Paul Guinery narrating, still has the power to amaze, amuse and infuriate. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Dulwich Picture Gallery at 7.30pm.
