THE MEMOIR CLUB
The Memoir Club, debuted at the 2018 Bloomsbury Festival, is an immersive promenade play by Anjali Bhat, based on deeply personal memoirs read by Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey and John Maynard Keynes to their friends, in a secret “Memoir Club”. The Club and its radically open discussions, largely lost to history, are unburied in the only way possible: by recreating it in all its audacity. The memoirs were interspersed with improvised discussions: each night yielded a unique performance, eventually morphing into an immersive soirée with a 1920s swing band.
The Bloomsbury Club, the lyrically beautiful Bloomsbury Set-themed bar at the Bloomsbury Hotel, hosted with their elegant cocktails as guests were led through their alternately velveted and twinkling, ivy-covered passageways.
£20 (including a complimentary cocktail)
