About this Event:

In the centenary year of Barbara Pym’s birth, actors Triona Adams and Oliver Ford Davies read a correspondence that celebrates the friendship between Pym and Philip Larkin. This is the first of a number of special celebratory Pym events during the year. This performance was devised by biographer Ann Thwaite and her husband Anthony Thwaite, the editor of Philip Larkin’s letters. The event takes place in the Bodleian Library, which holds both Larkin’s letters and Pym’s, and will be introduced by Eileen Roberts of the Barbara Pym Society, whose headquarters is at St Hilda’s College.

Triona Adams, Barbara Pym and Ann Thwaite are all St Hilda’s alumnae – and Oliver Ford Davies, who has played Larkin on stage and is currently appearing in Goodnight Mister Tom, is himself an Oxford alumnus and the father of a St Hilda’s graduate.
