VIVAM! Ovid IS alive 2,000 years after his death

An evening of readings and discussion

Join us for a lively discussion about Ovid’s work between Classics for All Patron Natalie Haynes and Professor Stephen Heyworth (Wadham College, Oxford), chaired by Dr Peter Jones MBE on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

The evening will commence with a reading, by an actor, of selected passages of Ovid in translation.

Following the discussion you will have an opportunity to hear from a teacher about the difference our support has made for their school.

This event will be held in the magnificent venue of the Royal Geographical Society. Doors will open at 6.30pm with refreshments upstairs; the talk will start at 7.15pm, Join us afterwards for a wine and canapé reception with the speakers and with Trustees and Patrons of Classics for All.

As this is a Classics for All fundraising event, we encourage you to give an extra donation above the standard £30 ticket, which will go towards introducing classical subjects in state schools in 2018-19. We have suggested amounts here between £50-100, but you may also wish to visit our website where you can make a separate donation. Perhaps you would like to join our ranks of ‘Centurion’ supporters giving £100 pa (that’s only £8.33 pm) by direct debit.

If you have any access requirements please contact us directly on The venue can accommodate wheelchair users and it has a hearing induction loop.
