Forthcoming Events

Shrewsbury Weekend, 26–27 October 2018

We’ll be having a weekend in the beautiful town of Shrewsbury in October 2018, where George Borrow and his family stayed for almost five months in 1857.  We’ll also visit places nearby that Borrow did, including the latest candidate for The Dingle of Lavengro!  More details on our Shrewsbury 2018 page.

Book on Lucy Brightwell

Our member Clive Wilkins-Jones is currently writing a book on Lucy Brightwell, a friend of George Borrow, and it’s hoped this will be published in 2018.

Members who gathered for the social meeting in London will have heard Clive give a talk about Lucy and the book promises to be very interesting.
