Celebrating the life of D.H. Lawrence
This year’s festival programme is packed with events celebrating both the life and work of D.H. Lawrence and the rich heritage and culture of this part of Nottinghamshire and Eastwood where he was born and raised, and which so influenced his work.
This year’s festival exhibition ‘Lawrence’s War’ marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War One by exploring how the war affected Lawrence, his life, his work and the lives of those at home in Eastwood. ‘Lawrence and the War Years’ is also the subject of this year’s D.H. Lawrence Society birthday lecture delivered by Dr. Catherine Brown on 11th September.
There is a huge variety of events on offer at this year’s festival including walks, talks, tours, film screenings, concerts, reading groups and more. Many local heritage attractions are opening their doors for special events to celebrate the festival and Saturday 6th September sees the return of the popular Vintage Craft Fair featuring free ‘try-it’ craft sessions.
