Words & Music
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Terry Waite’s release from captivity with an evening of poetry and piano music.
King’s Lynn Minster will host a special evening of poetry and piano music, “Words and Music”, with Terry Waite CBE and Vicky Yannoula on
Wednesday, 27th October at 7.30pm
Author and humanitarian Terry Waite CBE will read extracts form his book “Out of the silence: memories, poems, reflections” where he recalls highs and lows of his life, both during his ordeal as a hostage in Beirut and in the happier years of humanitarian work that have followed. Vicky Yannoula will perform classical piano music that aims to reflect the meaning of the readings and take the listener on a journey to inner peace.
