Forthcoming Events

King’s Lynn, Norfolk, Weekend, 2017
October 13–15

We hope to gather in historic town of King’s Lynn for a weekend of Borrovian events.  Members have been contacted and once numbers are known the details will be sent out.  This will probably include a trip across North Norfolk to see some of the places Borrow visited in the 1856 walk from Yarmouth to Lynn, as well as the beautiful buildings and sights of Lynn itself.  A page with provisional details is available.

Possible Cornwall Weekend, 2017

Again, there’s discussion about a weekend in Cornwall, where Borrow’s family originated and where Borrow made a visit to his relations at Penquite in Christmas 1853, resulting in a mini Wild Cornwall.

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 the coming months.  The George Borrow Trust is sponsoring the work.

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.
