Subject/Object is a new, biannual series of short festivals from the London Review Bookshop, loosely tracing a theme through the archive of the London Review of Books with a week of books and arts events. The first theme is birds, and all eight events will, this time, be online.
Tickets for individual events are £5 each, or you can book a festival ticket for the early-bird (!) price of £25 (£30 from Monday 10 May). The dawn chorus of Messiaen and late-night duet with a nightingale are for festival ticket-holders only. Festival ticket-holders will also be sent an e-publication containing all the pieces from the LRB archive that have fed into the events.
To book tickets for individual events, click through to the event pages via the links below.
The full programme:
Monday 24 May at 7 a.m.: A dawn chorus of Messiaen: James McVinnie, live from Exeter Cathedral. (only available as part of the festival ticket)
Wednesday 26 May at 11 p.m.: A late-night duet with a nightingale: Sam Lee and Alice Zawadzki, live from the South Downs (only available as part of the festival ticket)
HOW IT WORKS:
A link to join each event will be emailed to you a few hours before the start time. Please check your spam folder, but if you haven't had the link, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order confirmation number.
The events can also be accessed via the Eventbrite Online Event Page for each event.
Please check in advance that you can access the event, as we may not be able to help you once it's begun.
We'll send a Watch Again link to all ticket holders the day after the event, so if you're not able to attend live, you'll still be able to watch.
