Love or revile them, members of the Bloomsbury coterie were at the vanguard of cultural change at the beginning of the twentieth century. They were part of a larger revolt against the strictures and conformities of Victorian society and this general phenomena will be explored in some detail. Bohemian London will be under the spotlight and we will be appalled and delighted in equal measure for sure. The lives of artists, writers, poets, musicians and some very naughty socialites will be discussed. Handouts supplied and the course will be illustrated throughout. No prior knowledge will be assumed.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all the staff at Dillington House for making our day such an enjoyable one. As usual the food was great and the setting and sunshine superb, by the way thanks for organising the sun as well.
