Letchworth hosts Three Men in a Boat reading
A READING of a comedy classic will be held tomorrow (Friday).
Raconteur Keith Baldwin will be recounting the story of Jerome K Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat at Letchworth Arts Centre.
The novel, published in 1889, is an account of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford.
It has entertained generations of readers, has been turned into a number of films, and inspired the recent television series with Griff Rhys Jones, Dara O Briain and Rory McGrath. Former Household Cavalry soldier and retired senior police officer Keith will be reading from the book in his own inimitable style.
His Letchworth Arts Centre visit follows the great success of his interpretation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in December.
