Listening to Festivals Past

Thanks to Paul Chambers, the Birthplace Trust’s faithful technician, audio recordings of all the festival talks and interviews over the last several years have been made for the benefit of those who have been unable to make it to Berkhamsted for the annual event and also those who would like to listen again to a wide variety of topics relating to Greene and his writings.

These are easily accessible on the Resources and Archive page of the website. The recordings made at the 2021 and 2022 festivals have been  added recently. These include writer William Boyd (below) talking about the difficulty of adapting Greene’s last novel The Captain and the Enemy for the screen. Also, there is a chance to hear Richard Greene on writing the acclaimed, single-volume biography of his namesake. By contrast, there is Mike Hill’s interview with the creators of a musical version of Our Man in Havana.

Much to enjoy and re-live.
