A talk by Lucinda Hawksley at the Keats-Shelley House on Thursday 25 October at 5 p.m.

The relationship between Charles Dickens and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood began as a turbulent row - and ended in a strong friendship between Millais and Dickens. The lives of these brilliant young artists and the celebrity writer, all giants of the Victorian cultural scene, became as intertwined as one of Dickens’s own plots. Come and discover the stories behind the Pre-Raphaelites and their Dickens connections.
