Christmas Talk – Love Actually
December 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm£20.00
Love Actually: your favourite Christmas movie will never be the same again!
Join us for a light-hearted festive evening, with a talk about the film Love Actually from experienced broadcaster and teacher, Mary Sharp. Mary has kindly offered to give this talk to help raise funds for Amersham Museum.
When Richard Curtis interwove ten stories with equal doses of comedy and tragedy in Love Actually, he created one of our best loved Christmas movies. But could it be that the stories are not all that they seem? In this entirely original (and definitely unauthorised) lecture, Mary presents her insights into how Shakespeare’s four great tragedies (and other classical masterpieces) lurk just under the surface.
- Wednesday 15th December, 6pm drinks on arrival, talk starts at 7pm
- Amersham Band Hall, Rectory Meadow, Amersham
- £20 per person, which includes refreshments. Book below.
Mary worked for many years for BBC Radio 4 producing some of its most popular programmes including Start the Week and Woman’s Hour before joining the senior management team as a Commissioning Editor. Mary has subsequently worked as a teacher and Director of Sixth Form at a leading girls’ grammar school. She now lectures for the Arts Society and runs her own company “Opening Up Literature” which offers literature courses for adults including studies of Shakespeare and Creative Writing. Her most popular course is “Telling Tales” which explores how writers and artists have reinvented classical stories.
To enjoy and understand the talk, ideally you need to have watched the film before!
