Don’t miss your chance to see Damian Lewis in person – and reading poetry! – for the National Theatre platform Beyond Frankenstein: Josephine Hart presents Romantic Poetry.
Friday: At the time of writing there are still tickets available for the Josephine Hart Poetry Hour at the National Theatre (6pm, £3.50 / £2.50), tying in with Frankenstein and going all Romantic on us. Don’t expect Benedict Cumberbatch or Jonny Lee Miller – they’re performing an hour later and probably have better things to do – but Dan Stevens, Damian Lewis and Harriet Walter are on hand to read. Can’t say fairer.
