A Manuscripts and Special Collections lunchtime talk.

Mountain precipices, erupting volcanoes, battles, malaria and the ever-present danger of social failure: travel on the eighteenth-century Grand Tour could be unpleasantly hazardous. Join Sarah Goldsmith (University of York) to explore why Grand Tourists risked such dangers. Could these perils ever be more than a dangerous nuisance?

This talk is being held in connection with the ‘Grand Tourists and Others’ exhibition, currently on in the Weston Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts until 7th August 2016.

Free admission.
