A day-long festival exploring classical currents in contemporary culture featuring Marina Warner, Joseph Rykwert, Rosemary Hill, Pablo Bronstein and Craig Hamilton in the magnificent settings of Greenwich's Old Royal Naval College and Queen's House.
It’s the mark of a classic that it’s never out-dated. Many of the most exciting artists and writers working today are taking their inspiration from stories, concepts and forms now thousands of years old.
This festival celebrates the legacy of the ancient Greeks and Romans by connecting it with innovative work being created today.
A stellar array of architects, artists, poets, novelists, theatre-makers, performers and critical thinkers will be appearing across two stages in the Great Hall of Inigo Jones’s Queen’s House – the earliest classical building in Britain - and the adjacent Old Royal Naval College, which includes work by Christopher Wren, John Vanburgh and Nicholas Hawksmoor.
They’ll use music, visual arts and the spoken word to demonstrate how creatively the ancients shape our modern world.
