The 2019 AGM weekend takes place 17 – 19 May in Nuneaton, hosted by the George Eliot Fellowship. The Saturday event will be based at Nuneaton Town Hall on Coton Road, Nuneaton CV11 5AA. It is a beautiful building, opened in 1934 and designed in the Georgian style by Peacock and Bewley of Birmingham.
A trip to Arbury Hall is planned for the Sunday. The Hall is a mixture of Tudor and 18th c Gothic Revival and was the ancestral home of the Newdigate family. George Eliot was born on one of the estate farms – the daughter of the estate’s land agent. Arbury Hall became ‘Cheverel Manor’ in Scenes of Clerical Life.
The programme and booking form will appear in the early Spring – so watch this space, and book the date into your diary now!
