Laurie Lee: The Lost Recordings this September at Darwen Library Theatre

18th August 2018

Categories: Town Centre News

This September at Darwen Library Theatre, film-maker David Parker will introduce the lost recordings of one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, Laurie Lee.

In 1994, Laurie Lee, author of novels such as Cider with Rosie and As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning, shared his memories of an ‘eventful’ early life in a series of interviews with David. It was quite a coup, Laurie did not ‘do’ television!

He talked with sublime eloquence about his life in the Slad Valley in the Cotswolds, and the influence of the landscapes and memories of his childhood on his subsequent writing.

In this session David will introduce the recordings and show the 30-minute film he made with Laurie.

Questions and answers will follow.
