From Demons to Angels, Tristan Bates Theatre, Covent Garden, 12 December 2017 at 19:00pm

“Every sinner has a future and every saint has a past!” At this festive time of year, we stagger from Halloween to Christmas, from Demons to Angels, from the monstrous to the divine. Sometimes those monsters are mythical or illusory; sometimes they come from closer to home… Join Rhyme & Reason for an hour of poetic reflection and insight. Sometimes humorous, sometimes profane but ultimately uplifting, an alternative look at our myths and mysteries in the run-up to Christmas.
