Hilaire Belloc, The Man Who Saw The Future

Sun 25th October @ 7:00 pm

Shoreham Wordfest

Hilaire Belloc, The Man Who Saw The Future

by Chris Hare


One hundred years ago, Sussex writer, poet, essayist and former Member of Parliament, Hilaire Belloc, made a number of predictions about the future of this country and the world.  At the time, people thought him archaic in his thought, absurd in his arguments, and on the wrong side of history.  Today, though, his sense of direction seems to have been uncannily accurate on many fronts.

Local historian, Chris Hare will also focus on Belloc the Sussex man.  He will read some of Belloc’s Sussex poems, sing some of Belloc’s songs and read extracts from Belloc’s Sussex book, The Four Men.

Part of the Local and Live mini-festival, a joint initiative between Ropetackle Arts Centre and Shoreham Wordfest, to celebrate the creativity of local writers, musicians, actors and poets and the return to live performance.
