Book Letters Live in support of the RSPCA


Letters Live is set to return to London’s Royal Albert Hall later this year for a one-off show in aid of the RSPCA on Thursday 12th December. This event forms part of the celebrations for the 200th anniversary of the RSPCA this year.


Known for its engaging performances of remarkable letters from around the world and across history, Letters Live will join forces with the RSPCA to create an unforgettable evening of storytelling, showcasing the power of the written word and humanity’s bond with the natural world.


Each Letters Live event is unique, as the entire list of performers is kept secret from the audience until the moment they take to the stage. Previous performers have included Benedict Cumberbatch, Carey Mulligan, Woody Harrelson, Jude Law, Colin Firth, Gillian Anderson, Ian McKellen, Mary J. Blige, Oscar Isaac, Thandie Newton, Tom Hiddleston, Stephen Fry, Olivia Colman, Laurence Fishburne, Riz Ahmed, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kylie Minogue, and more.


The letters read are unpredictable, varied and always memorable. Where some express anger or pain, others delight the audience with wisdom and humour. Over the years, letters written by iconic characters such as David Bowie, Mohandas Gandhi, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Kurt Vonnegut, Charlotte Bronte, James Baldwin, Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson, John Steinbeck, Madonna, Tom Hanks, Dorothy Parker and Che Guevara have been read, alongside hidden gems from lesser-known figures.


The RSPCA is the world’s oldest and largest animal protection organisation which exists to inspire everyone to create a better world for every animal. For 200 years, they’ve been changing attitudes, behaviours and laws to revolutionise how society treats animals. Because a world that’s better for animals is better for us all.
