FULKE GREVILLE FESTIVAL 2018
The Fulke Greville Festival 2018 is a celebration of the history, poetry, music, life and legacy of Sir Fulke Greville (1554-1628), Alcester’s most famous Elizabethan.
As 2018 marks the 400th anniversary of his funding of Alcester Town Hall and the 390th anniversary of his death, a calendar of special events will bring to life the many cultural interests and achievements of this intriguing figure from Warwickshire’s past.
A series of organised events, lectures, talks, guided walks and a concert will run from Friday 28 - Sunday 30 September 2018, and be based in and around Alcester and Warwickshire, the town and county of his birth.
We are thrilled to announce that our ‘Sonnets & Songs’ event on the 29th September will include the World Premiere of Stuart Fortey’s tragicomedy Greville’s End.
Consisting of engaging lectures, walking tours and concerts, the festival will bring to life the history and legacy of this most extraordinary figure from Warwickshire's past.
