The Live Literature Company were invited by Tate Britain to give the opening performance for their exhibition on William Blake. Val is pictured at the entrance to this wonderful exhibition after LLC's very successful immersive Blake performance at Tate.
In December 2019 Val was invited to speak at The India International Centre, Delhi. The title of her talk was 'Tribute to Rabindranath Tagore'. This followed on from staging Tagore's work at The British Library. There was a warm and appreciative audience for her talk. After time in Delhi Val toured North India and spent a magical and profoundly moving time at the Taj Mahal.
