Dining with a Georgian Country Parson

 
  6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Norfolk clergyman, James Woodforde kept a diary between 1758 and 1802 in which he daily recorded his very ordinary, some might say dull, private life. But what makes Woodforde unique is his record of almost every dinner he ate, whether at home, with friends, at an inn or his Oxford college, or in the houses of the local gentry.  Join Principal Librarian, Dr Peter Ross to learn about  what the Georgians ate, their dining habits and the long and gentle life of one of England’s most important diarists.

Includes wine reception.

Refunds will only be given if places are cancelled more than 48hours prior to an event (minus the booking fee) or if an event is cancelled by GHL.

Cost: £8.14
