The D H Lawrence Festival 2016

Thursday 25 August - Sunday 18 September 2016

Celebrate one of the UK’s most controversial authors  - and arguably Notts' greatest writer - with a celebration in and around his hometown of Eastwood.

A programme of talks, exhibitions, readings, special events and workshops will explore the different facets of D.H. Lawrence’s works and personalities. Previous events have seen special exhibitions of some of Lawrence’s rare writings and paintings.
The 2016 festival programme is packed with events celebrating both the life and work of D H Lawrence and the rich heritage and culture of the part of Nottinghamshire where he was born and raised, and which so influenced his work.

Every year there is a huge variety of events on offer including walks, talks, tours, film screenings, concerts, reading groups and more.
