16th September 2019 | The Social

As London gets William Blake fever - ahead of the massive show at Tate Britain, this Salon with author John Higgs is the perfect way to get to grips with the visionary poet and painter.

Find out what it is about Blake’s work that has so endured? Hear how the man, his work and his beliefs have been misunderstood, and how an understanding of Blake can help you make a heaven of your life on earth and give your own creative imagination a new lease of life.

The incredible writer, novelist, journalist and cultural historian, John Higgs (The KLF, I have America Surrounded, Watling Street) will make the case that far from being the mere New Age counterculture figure that many assume him to be, Blake is now more relevant than ever.

Join us at The Social on Little Portland St, just around the corner from Blake’s birthplace. Doors open 7pm, 16th September. Tickets are £15 and include a copy of John’s new book, William Blake Now: Why He Matters More Than Ever.

Doors: 19:00

Venue: The Social
