We are delighted to announce the line-up for our third annual lecture series!
Just in time for St Valentine’s Day, Dr Andrea Clarke (British Library) will be giving an illustrated talk entitled ‘Love Letters: 2000 Years of Romance‘ on 12 February at 7.00 pm. The lecture promises a dip into the most intimate world of the handwritten love letter. Highlights will include letters written by Henry VIII, Horatio Nelson, Charlotte Brontë and Oscar Wilde. Dr Clarke is curator of Early Modern Manuscripts at the British Library, where she co-curated the exhibition, Henry VIII: Man and Monarch (2009).
Tickets can be purchased at our new booking site, or can be bought on the door. Please join us for our first lecture of the year, as well as a glass of wine (drinks are available from 6.00 pm).
