EVENT POSTPONED. A new date in Autumn 2018 will be announced soon.

An evening of poetry devised and performed by Vincent Guy

Vincent brings to life the great English language poets who were inspired by Greece, her ancient culture, her modern struggles and her magical landscapes.

Included are famous names like Yeats, Poe, Shakespeare and of course Lord Byron. Vincent draws on his wide knowledge of literature and history to illuminate the poems, linking them here and there to his own life story.

The programme is in English, appealing both to Greek people and to international visitors. It is wide-ranging, lively, always entertaining. 

Vincent has performed versions of this programme in Scotland and, most recently, in Delphi in 2017 at the Openair Theatre of Angelos Sikelianos.
