Beyond the ropes: An insider’s guide to Writers’ Houses

Join Lizzie Dunford, Director of Jane Austen’s House for an exploration of the history and development of that most special type of museum – the writer’s house. Starting from Hampshire’s own Jane Austen, Lizzie will take us on a tour of the homes of Britain’s great writers and share insights from her career spent caring for and sharing these inspiring and vital homes. 

Enjoy a drink upon arrival at 11am, followed by a delicious three course lunch with a glass of wine, in the Oak Room Restaurant.
