A Passport to freedom: Women Travellers in the 19th Century

We’re delighted to announce that our next conference, on the theme of Travel, will take place between 5 and 8 July 2024 at the Sketchley Grange Hotel & Spa, a 4-star country house hotel on the borders of Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

We’ve gathering together an exciting and diverse array of speakers and we’re lining up a number of different literary options for excursions. We hope these will include Lichfield and the houses of Dr Johnson and Erasmus Darwin, and Nuneaton, birthplace of George Eliot.

Visit our main conference page for more details.
