Paupers and Poetry: The Workhouse at Southwell

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 talk by Dr Charlotte May will focus on the Workhouse at Southwell, Nottinghamshire, whose founder was a close connection of the poet Lord Byron.

This event will take place 1-2pm on Friday 26 July in the Djanogly Theatre, Lakeside Arts. Entrance is free and booking is recommended.
