Vote For Something Different

03/04/19 - LOVE, SEX, ART AND TRAVEL are just some of the themes covered in a new exhibition, ‘Discover A Life Without Limits’, about to be launched at Eastwood’s D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum. Looking at the life of one of Nottinghamshire’s most famous rebel writers, D.H. Lawrence, prepare to be surprised and inspired by a life that was anything but ordinary.

Museum and Collections Officer, Carolyn Melbourne describes the exhibition as “exploring the many different ways that Lawrence defied expectations, broke boundaries and challenged conventions.” 

Choosing from topics including sex, travel, religion and his social circles, visitors are invited to explore Lawrence’s extraordinary life and to vote on what they would like to find out more about. The outcome of the voting will help influence upcoming exhibitions.

 ‘Discover a Life Without Limits’ will run from 12th April until 26th July 2019.  The exhibition is free to visit during the museum’s opening hours with a public launch event taking place on the 12th April from 4pm till 7pm.  

Also new for 2019, are a series of special events and a family friendly programme, with parents and tots storytelling sessions and ‘Gin & Gaslight’ evening tours. So whether you’ve read any of Lawrence’s works or not, the birthplace of one of the country’s most controversial authors has something to interest everyone.  As well as guided tours of the museum, visitors can now choose self-guided admission (the self-guided option is FREE for all Broxtowe residents).
