Meet Mr Wickham and Me in Stamford

I’m thrilled to share the details of two forthcoming events at the Stamford Georgian Festival. I'll be giving a talk on innovation and enlightenment, followed by Adrian Lukis in Being Mr Wickham, my brand new one-man show that lifts the lid on what Jane Austen's most notorious rogue has been up since his marriage to Lydia.

Details of both events are below, we'd love you to join us!

More Than a Dream: Imagination and Innovation in the Age of Enlightenment, 29th September, Stamford Arts Centre, 5pm
In the Georgian era, knowledge and technology moved at a breathless pace. The Age of Enlightenment changed the landscape of the nation and from breathtaking architecture to intriguing experiments such as the so-called Electrical Boy, people couldn’t get enough of this brave new world.  This entertaining talk will look at invention and innovation in the Age of Enlightenment and examine what enlightenment really meant to the Georgians.
