John Aubrey [1626-97] has come to be recognised as England’s first biographer.

Patrick Garland’s adaptation of Aubrey’s writings represent a day in the latter part of Aubrey’s life. "It is as if one is paying a visit to the house of an old man, who makes up for the absence of friends by bringing to life reminiscences of people, remembering them and telling stories about them."

Brief Lives is followed by a finger buffet, with live music by "Streetfeeder": jazz, funk & Swing
