A new venture for my colleagues in the J.B. Priestley Society. They are running a day course all about Priestley at Higham Hall on Saturday 5 November 2011 (that’s an easy date to remember!). The Hall is an educational trust located on the northern edge of the Lake District; it runs fascinating short courses for adults on art history, literature, music, crafts etc. The Priestley day will include sessions on Priestley’s writings of the 1930s and the Second World War, his links with local author Hugh Walpole, and his wonderful play The Linden Tree, all presented by experts from the Society.
Society members will be receiving full details by post. The event is open to all: find out more on the Hall’s events page.
