Forthcoming Events

Possible Shrewsbury Weekend, Autumn 2018

The Society is hoping to have a weekend in Shrewsbury probably in October 2018.  Plans are yet to be made so more details will follow, but it would probably be an informal get together on the Friday night, talks on Saturday morning with possibly a guided tour of Shrewsbury in the afternoon (it’s a lovely place and well worth the visit).  Saturday evening we usually have a nice meal together and perhaps on Sunday a coach trip to visit places nearby that Borrow knew.  We expect to add a page with some details by Christmas 2017: as always, everyone will be welcome.

Book on Lucy Brightwell

Our member Clive Wilkins-Jones is currently writing a book on Lucy Brightwell, a friend of George Borrow, and it’s hoped this will be published in 2018.

Members who gathered for the social meeting in London will have heard Clive give a talk about Lucy and the book promises to be very interesting.
