Editing DH Lawrence with a phoenix symbol


‘Editing D.H. Lawrence’

2 February until 27 May 2023

Lawrence is an iconic figure in English literature, but also one of the most controversial.

He struggled with publishers throughout his career to express himself in the form he wanted. 

This exhibition will trace the ways in which the Eastwood born writer found his writing amended and censored and how he found innovative ways to respond to this.

The exhibition is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10am till 4pm at the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum, 8a Victoria St, Eastwood, Nottingham NG16 3AW.

Friday 14 April at 7.00pm.

A gin tasting experience with a difference will be on offer in Eastwood this April, as the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum’s Gin and Gaslight events return for 2023.

The next event, on Friday 14 April will give guests a taste of Victorian decadence, with a chance to learn about and sample five gins, whilst experiencing this award-winning museum at night.

On arrival guests will be greeted by their Victorian hosts with an aperitif, before taking in the magic of the museum and its historic rooms and exhibitions by gas light. 

The gin tasting will then begin, learning all about their history and flavour profiles.

This is a popular, intimate event so spaces are limited. Tickets are £15 plus a small booking fee and can be booked online via event brite (Opens in a new window).
