Catherine Curzon

I am your gracious hostess, Catherine Curzon, historian, author and lover of all things long 18th century. Should you wish to discuss a press enquiry, speaking engagement or similar, send me a missive. You can find a list of the talks I give by clicking here.

I am the creator and co-writer (with Adrian Lukis) of Being Mr Wickham, a one-man show in which Adrian reprises his celebrated role to fill us in on what George Wickham has been up to in the thirty years since Pride and Prejudice!

I've spoken at venues and events including the Stamford Georgian Festival, the Bath Jane Austen Festival, Lichfield Guildhall, the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, Dr Johnson’s House, Kenwood House, the Hurlingham Club, Godmersham Park, and the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. I've provided additional research for An Evening with Jane Austen, starring Adrian Lukis and Caroline Langrishe, and I've been lucky enough to introduce the performance at venues across the UK. 


In addition to my published books, I've written extensively for websites and publications including BBC History Extra and History Answers and in magazines including All About HistoryExplore History, History of RoyalsReal CrimeWho Do You Think You Are?, Your Family History, and Jane Austen's Regency World

Besides my love of all things Georgian, I'm passionate about theatre and the mighty Huddersfield Town. I hold a Master’s degree in Film and live in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill with a rakish colonial gentleman, a long-suffering cat and a lively dog.

Hello Catherine. Don't know how I've managed not to trip over your wonderful site before. As you know, I've been writing (yet another) Waterloo novel in time for next year and WISH I'd found you earlier. In all the time I was researching, I never found anything quite so atmospheric as this. Congrats!!!

Catherine Curzon said...

Good evening to you. Thank you for your very kind words, another Waterloo novel is always welcome here in the salon, it is an absolute pleasure to read your kind words!

Hello Madame. I just thought I should pay you a visit and say thank you for the wonderful articles that you have shared with us on your Facebook Page. I have shared several of them with my own readers on the 18th Century History Website's Facebook and Google + pages. Please continue the good work.

Catherine Curzon said...

It is my absolute pleasure, and thank you for your links and articles too!

Johanne Winwood said...

I have stumbled across your wonderful site and I am charmed beyond words by it. It has now joined my list of must reads, feeding my obsession for all things Georgian. Thank you for the interesting and amusing insights into that most thrilling of times.

Catherine Curzon said...

Thank you! I'm really pleased that you enjoy the site; the more people obsessed by all things Georgian, the better!

Most Esteemed Catherine
Have received copy of your book, Kings of Georgian Britian. Thank you.
George II is one of my heroes, Dettingen 1743.
BTW did Jacqueline Reiter tell you that she served as a gunner in my crew
while her father was assigned to the British embassy in Wash DC?

Catherine Curzon said...

I'm so glad it has arrived; I do hope you enjoy dipping into the world of the four Georges. Lovely to meet a George II fan too, he seems a rather neglected king to me!

A gunner, eh? She hasn't mentioned that!
