To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange(1962), the International Anthony Burgess Foundation is organising a multi-disciplinary conference to examine its profound and enduring impact on literature, film, music, theatre and society.
The conference will be supported by the UK premiere of Burgess’s Clockwork Orange music, a new Burgess/Kubrick exhibition at the John Rylands Library (in collaboration with the Stanley Kubrick Archive), and a film season at the Cornerhouse cinema. Our keynote speakers will include Peter Kramer, author of the most recent book about A Clockwork Orange, published in 2011.
The conference will take place between 28 June and 30 June 2012. Booking is now open here and is £70. Concessions are £40; and day tickets are £25.
A conference ticket entitles you to buffet lunches on all three days of the conference, a wine reception, a performance of the Clockwork Orange songs by Anthony Burgess, and discounted admission to three film screenings at the Cornerhouse cinema. Please let us know in advance if you would like to attend the films, so that we can reserve tickets for you.
On purchasing your ticket you will receive a registration form and provisional conference schedule for your reference. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries in the meantime.
