Canongate Creates Letters Live

Canongate has created a spin-off company to further develop its Letters Live series of events.

Five shows, which will feature actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey, will run at the Freemasons’ Hall from 31st March to 4th April 2015. The live events will celebrate the “enduring power of literary correspondence” and will support the literacy charities The Reading Agency, First Story, and Ministry of Stories.

Canongate has partnered with the film and television production company SunnyMarch to build Letters Live into what it described as a “far-reaching and ambitious business.” SunnyMarch is a UK based production company run by producers Adam Ackland, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Adam Selves. Writers Shaun Usher and Simon Garfield are also shareholders of the new Letters Live business.
