Romantic Facts and Fantasies: Culture and Heritage of the Romantic Age, c. 1780-1840

On Friday 26th July 2019 at in the Djanogly Theatre 1pm Dr Charlotte May will focus on the Workhouse at Southwell, Nottinghamshire, whose founder was a close connection of the poet Lord Byron.

The early 19th century is often seen a time of invention, creativity and technology. However, it also saw the development of an institution that shaped the lives of less fortunate members of society for decades to come – the Workhouse.

This is one of a series of FREE talks to accompany the exhibition which runs in the Weston Gallery from Friday 10 May to Sunday 25 August; open Tuesday-Friday, 11am-4pm Saturday and Sunday, 12noon-4pm; closed on Mondays
