In celebration of the 250th anniversary of William Blake's birth, Val staged performances of Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience at Exeter Cathederal, St. Michael's church Highgate, and St. John's church, Waterloo. The production was a combined arts performance with projections of Blake's visual images, which he created for the poems. Also included in this production was music by contemporary composer John Tavener, who was inspired to set some of Blake's poems to music. The cast for these performances included: Louise Bangay, Dave Fishley, Janet Whiteside, Anna Calder-Marshall, Tenor Henry Moss, Dancer Amadeo Rosenheim.
This programme has also been performed at The Cheltenham Literature Festival and The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust with a cast that included David Burke, Anna Calder-Marshall, Janet Whiteside, and Jessica Turner.

The Live Literature Company has staged performances of Blake by award winning contemporary Canadian playwright Elliott Hayes. This one man hour-long performance has previously been performed by The Live Literature Company as a stand-alone production, as well as having been filmed for The South Bank Show. This piece was also included as part of Val's programme for the 250th anniversary of Blake's birth, following on from Songs of Innocence and Experience.
