Learn more about the love letters at the heart of The Gods Are All Here, Phil Okwedy’s new show (Wednesday 6th July, 8pm).

In modern life, we expect an immediate response when communicating with others. Emails and texts that go briefly unanswered cause concern and if we see two blue ticks on WhatsApp we wonder why they haven’t already replied. But it wasn’t always like this. Once we wrote and, better still, received letters. Drawing on extracts from these love letters, Phil will guide you through your own memories of letters and communications throughout your life, what they meant to you and the stories they invoke.
