We have a varied selection of lectures in the current season covering many different aspects of Georgian society and culture. These are being held in a new venue for the society, at the Friargate Quaker Meeting House, whose own history stretches back to 1673 though the building itself is modern. This will make it much easier to socialise with tea and coffee available, and it is readily accessible to public transport. Lectures are open to everyone, though we do ask for a donation from non-members.
David Fairer, Emeritus Professor of English, University of Leeds will be talking about his experience of making the 18th century come alive for the contemporary reader through the medium of crime fiction.
Lectures are now in Friargate, at the Quaker Meeting House in York's city centre.
See this page for more information.
It will be followed by the presentation of the annual Patrick Nuttgens Award and a lecture by Martin Myrone from Tate Britain on William Etty and the Royal Academy.
