Burgess at the Manchester International Festival:

The International Anthony Burgess Foundation is delighted to be collaborating with the Manchester International Festival on a series of events to celebrate Anthony Burgess’s centenary. The Festival runs from Thursday 29 June – Sunday 16 July 2017, and offers a unique opportunity to commemorate Burgess in the city of his birth.

On Tuesday 4 July, the Bridgewater Hall will host the European premiere of Burgess’s Symphony in C. This will be performed by the BBC Philharmonic alongside the world premiere of an original composition by Raymond Yiu, The World Was Once All Miracle, a musical setting of six poems by Burgess.

The Whitworth Art Gallery presents an artist’s film based on two of Burgess’s Enderby novels. No End to Enderby adapts episodes from Inside Mr Enderby (1963) and Enderby’s Dark Lady (1984).
