Due to unforeseen circumstances Natalie Haynes is no longer able to attend the Festival and this event has been cancelled. 

Step back in time with writer and broadcaster Natalie Haynes (Pandora's Jar, Divine Might) in this special live edition of her wildly popular BBC Radio 4 show.

This comical guide to Ancient Greece and Rome sees Haynes combine comedy and conversation to breathe new life into the classics. Across four seasons she's profiled key figures from ancient Greece and Rome, exhuming everyone from Petronius to Plato.

Laugh along with Natalie as she creates a stand-up show around a classical icon.
