D.H. Lawrence Festival 2014

Friday 5 - Thursday 25 September 2014

Celebrate one of the UK’s most controversial authors with a celebration in 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 2014 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.

This year's festival exhibition 'Lawrence's War' marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War One by exploring how the war affected Lawrence, his life, his work and the lives of those at home in Eastwood. 'Lawrence and the War Years' is also the subject of this year's D H Lawrence Society birthday lecture delivered by Dr Catherine Brown on Thursday 11 September.

There is a huge variety of events on offer at this year's festival including walks, talks, tours, film screenings, concerts, reading groups and more. Many local heritage attractions are opening their doors for special events to celebrate the festival and Saturday 6 September sees the return of the Vintage Craft Fair at D H Lawrence Heritage featuring free 'try it' craft sessions.
