Spinning around the world
- 09 October 2015
Punam Ramchurn, Director of Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival, said: "It's going to be a really humorous and globe-trotting show that I know will also keep the parents entertained too. Rochdale Literature and Ideas Festival will have lots of entertainment on offer for all the family."
Around the World in 80 Days is at Touchstones Arts and Heritage Centre from Friday 23 October to Sunday 25 October with two performances on Saturday. The Sunday show includes an audience with the writer/director Joyce Branagh. Tickets (£3) are available from www.rochdaleliteraturefestival.co.uk or you can book in person at Touchstones Arts and Heritage Centre in The Esplanade, Rochdale.
Now in its third year the festival includes more than 30 events covering music, readings, children's shows, interviews, comedy, talks and more.
The festival celebrates and promotes the Maskew Collection of classic literature and philosophy at Rochdale Central Library, encouraging people to engage in thought and philosophy. It is due to the generosity of Annie and Frank Maskew, a Rochdale couple who shared a passion for reading and thinking, who originally met in Rochdale Library. They left a sum of money to be used on resources and events related to literature, and philosophy to ensure classic works are available for future generations.
