We stopped by The Southbank Centre to chat with Ted Hodgkinson about the upcoming reopening of the Purcell Room and Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Both fantastic spaces for literature, the Southbank Centre are celebrating their reopening with readings of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart and Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook.

Ted talks to us about the importance of these pieces and their connection to their star-studded readers.

Things Fall Apart, 15th April
