Wednesday 13 December 2017 6.00 pm to 7.30 pm
City of Westminster Archives Centre
10 St Ann’s Street London SW1P 2DE
This year’s Tithe Grant celebrates the art of letter writing and in particular William Blake’s idiosyncratic yet unbounded approach. The Judge is the well loved novelist Tracy Chevalier.
One of the most important collection of Blake’s letters is held at the City of Westminster Archives Centre, and so it is wonderful that the Award Ceremony for the 2017 Tithe Grant should be held here.
You will be able to see a display of some of Blake’s letters to Thomas Butts, and the Archivist Alison Kenney will give a short talk about the letters and the other original works of Blake that are held in the City of Westminster’s rich archive.
There will be an opportunity to hear extracts from the entries, and finally, the Winner of the Tithe Grant for 2017 will be announced.
All Welcome ~ Cake and Conversation
