Guided Walk Reveals Lawrence's Nottingham

4/8/2016 - A new guided walk will reveal the sights and sounds of the Nottingham City Centre that Eastwood born writer, D.H Lawrence knew next month, as part of the D.H Lawrence Festival of Culture.

The free walk, on Saturday 3rd September from 10.30am will take in a range of places which Lawrence visited and which he drew inspiration from in his writing including the Nottingham High School, Nottingham University Buildings and the Market Square. The visit will also include a visit to the Bromley House Subscription Library, for a short guided tour of this hidden gem.

The walk will meet at the High School Tram Stop on Waverley Street at 10.30am and will take approximately two hours. Please wear appropriate clothes and footwear.

This year marks the second year of the D.H. Lawrence Festival of Culture with a variety of arts and cultural events taking place in Eastwood, Nuthall, Stapleford, Beeston and beyond.  Running from 25th August until the end of September, the programme includes a beer festival, comedy, exhibitions, pedal powered cinema, family fun days, a traditional fair, music events and much more.

The Festival is coordinated by Broxtowe Events, The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum team and a festival steering group.
