Much loved British actor and Keats-Shelley200 Ambassador Julian Sands is back at the Keats-Shelley House for three exclusive and highly intimate readings as part of our Keats-Shelley200 programme to mark the bicentenaries of Keats's and Shelley's deaths in Italy, and to celebrate their extraordinary legacies.
