Valentines day cardFree drop-in card making in the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum Gift Shop until Valentine’s Day! Pop into our shop and make a free A5 card for that someone special in your life. No special someone? Then make a Victorian Vinegar Valentine! These were unusual (and rather rude) cards sent to friends and family members to make them aware of their less endearing qualities! But if you’re feeling nice, make your card romantic by adding some real Nottingham lace or why not gain inspiration from a D.H. Lawrence poem and try and write your own!

Valentine’s Day became a big thing for the Victorians as printing techniques became more sophisticated. To help celebrate all things Victorian for Valentine’s Day we are offering this drop-in activity for absolutely no cost.

The activity will be available in the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum Gift shop, which is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.


The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is an award winning visitor attraction in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire (not far from junction 26 of the M1 and the IKEA retail park).  It combines D.H. Lawrence’s authentically recreated childhood home, with an exhibition space celebrating the author’s life, work and humble beginnings. From here you can also explore the surrounding countryside, which inspired his work.
