Ben Holland Live in Tokyo

Somewhere in Tokyo on the 31st, then Polka Dots on the 6th of April, Tokyo

I'm going to Japan for the first time! I have always loved Japan from a distance, I can't wait to get a good look up close! The details of the two venues I will be playing are written in Japanese. All I know is that the second venue I will be playing on the 6th of April is called 'Polka Dots'. I will discover more when I get there. If you'll be in Japan between the 24th of March and the 6th of April - drop me a line if you'd like to come to a gig and I'll pass on less vague details...

Ben Holland

Pushkin House, Bloomsbury Square, London

BRINGING PUSHKIN & PLATONOV TO LIFE IN ENGLISH.

A lecture on the works of two of Russia's greatest writers, Pushkin and Platanov.

A lecture by Robert Chandler. Ben Holland will be joining Robert, and Robert will be reading from Ben Holland's adaptation of Pushkin's 'Queen of Spades'. In Robert's words - "Ben Holland's ballad translation of 'Queen of Spades' captures the spirit of Pushkin's story more perfectly than any prose translation I know (my own included!).
