D.H. Lawrence museum’s popular Gin and Gaslight event returns for another year

The award winning D.H. Lawrence Museum in Eastwood will be opening its doors again for one of their Gin and Gaslight events this April.

Visitors wishing to step back in time and experience a taste of Victorian decadence are invited to a Victorian evening in the family home where D.H. Lawrence was born in 1885.

On arrival guests will be greeted by Victorian hosts with an aperitif. They are welcome to join in and dress in Victorian attire if they wish, as well as being able to explore the house and exhibitions by gaslight.

Guests will also have time to engage with the hosts and learn more about D.H. Lawrence and his literary legacy. Finally, guests will be offered several gins to sample and learn about their history and flavour profiles.  

Carolyn Melbourne, Museums and Collections Officer says “This popular event is so special as it enables visitors to see the museum in the evening by gaslight as it would have been in Victorian times and with the added benefit of sampling some fine gins! A truly marvellous experience awaits all that book the Gin and Gaslight event.”

This is a popular ticketed event and places are limited, therefore booking early is advisable. The cost is £17.50 per person and the event will be held on Friday 26 April at 7pm.

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is where this literary legend was born on 11 September 1885. Only 30 minutes from Nottingham city centre, the Museum is a must see for fans of literature, and for those wanting to delve deeper into Nottingham’s literary heritage.

Step back in time to experience the traditional Victorian wash house, see the parlour; a room only for special guests, feel the warmth of the fire in the kitchen and have a wander around the parental and other bedrooms. The museum’s permanent exhibition features items from Lawrence’s family and even paintings created by the author himself.
