King's College gets ready to dig deep as they prepare for their sixth annual Arts & Humanities Festival, which this year focusses on the theme of the underground. From the 15th - 24th October you are invited to dozens of free talks, workshops, and performances exploring music, literature, philosophy, politics, history, religion, and more. You'll get to explore both the literal and metaphorical side to the underground, such as the ruins of Rome, bunkers from the Blitz, radical operas, and cultural and political debates.
The events will be held across numerous venues, including Somerset House, the Anatomy Museum, Aldwych Underground Station, and King's College lecture theatres. To start off the festival Anthony Beevor & Andrew Graham-Dixon will discuss Sheltering in London in the Second World War. There will also be an exhibition about the Oral History of Older Gay Men in Hong Kong, which will be followed up by an accompanying talk on the 16th October.
