Magic Lamp Charity ’Literary Minutes’ At British Ambassador’s Residence In Budapest, 14 May
You're invited to be one of the 50 people on 14 May who will spend an evening of '70 extraordinary literary minutes' with The Magic Lamp team and friends of the charity foundation, including Her Majesty's Ambassador to Hungary.

From the organisers: Besides poems, we will also touch upon the connection between the two cultures, mutual understanding, journeys, big encounters and, most importantly, the role literary works play in all of the above.  

Foreign policy correspondent Al Ghaoui Hesna and literary scholar Anna Juhász will discuss these topics and more. During the evening, select works from British and Hungarian literature will be recited by actress Gabriella Hámori and His Excellency, while flutist Dávid Kanyó will take everyone on a musical journey.

To round off the evening, amidst some delicious bites, drinks and friendly conversations, we will express our gratitude to His Excellency Iain Lindsay OBE and You for supporting the Magic Lamp Foundation. We also have a surprise in store...
