Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) was quite the polymath! He was a novelist, poet, playwright, linguist, translator and critic. And a talented and prolific composer who wrote over 250 musical works during a compositional career that spanned more than 60 years.
Join us for a tour of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester to find out more about his exceptional life and works.
The Foundation’s staff will introduce Burgess’ work and members will have the opportunity to see a selection of objects from the archive – which includes books, music and papers.
The visit will last approximately 2 hours. Tea/coffee will be provided.
Good to know: Places are very limited so book soon to avoid disappointment.
