Yours Faithfully, Edna Welthorpe (Mrs)

Islington’s Pride is thrilled to announce that for this years Bloomsbury Festival, The Postal Museum is hosting a special evening celebrating the hilarious letters of complaint sent by Mrs. Edna Welthorpe – a pseudonym of controversial 60s playwright Joe Orton.

19 October 2018 / 18:30 – 21:00
The Postal Museum, 15-20 Phoenix Place, London WC1X 0DA
£12 per person, £10 concession (60+, Students, The Postal Museum Members)

You can find out more about the event and book tickets on the Postal Museum website.

We will be in attendance and after the event you’ll be able to look over some of Edna letters and a selection of our library book covers creatively doctored by Joe and his partner Kenneth Halliwell.

You can find more out about Orton and Halliwell’s escapades in Islington Museum’s exhibition’s  Malicious Damage.

See you on the 19th of October!
