Chocolate Box Cranford – an Idyll? (online talk)

24 February, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford is famed for its portrayal of picture-perfect English village life, and its well-loved illustrations by Hugh Thomson help to paint this chocolate-box picture. But is there more to Cranford than the idyllic image suggests? Find out in this online winter’s evening talk with the Gaskell Society’s Anthony Burton,

It’s the perfect complement to the House’s exciting new Cranford exhibition in 2021, where you can discover more about the book, its inspiration and its legacy.

The talk takes place over Zoom and tickets are £4. Use the link below to book your place.
