Join us for this exclusive event when Stephen will introduce his book Mythos and no doubt entertain us as well with some interesting anecdotes. The Greek myths have been a passion of Stephen's since he was eight years old. This is the book that he has been waiting to write, it is a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, triumphs and tragedies
The event will begin at 3.30 with Stephen talking about his book and his writing, followed by a traditional Afternoon Tea served at approximately 4.15pm.
The event will close between 5 - 5.30 pm.
The Greek myths are amongst the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis. Spellbinding, informative and moving, Stephen Fry's Mythos perfectly captures these stories for the modern age - in all their rich and deeply human relevance.
Stephen Fry is an award-winning comedian, actor, presenter and director. He rose to fame alongside Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie (which he cowrote with Laurie) and Jeeves and Wooster, and was unforgettable as General Melchett in Blackadder. He hosted over 180 episodes of QI, and has narrated all seven of the Harry Potter novels for the audiobook recordings.
