A Victorian Celebration

We celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth on May 24th 2019

It was a time of hope and immense optimism, bringing forth a great flowering of genius in the arts and sciences; a time of exploration and discovery. A Victorian Celebration ranges from the Queen’s own charming account of her Coronation, to a delightful anecdote of her singing a Gilbert and Sullivan duet with one of her courtiers. We’ll visit the raucous humour of the music hall and, in complete contrast, join an elegant gathering of genteel middle-class society at one of the musical evenings so popular at the time.

Please join us, accompanied by melodious music of the period, for a riotous coach ride with the irrepressible Mr. Pickwick, and delight in the company of many well-loved characters, historical and fictitious, as glimpsed through the memorable words of great writers for this extraordinary age, including Alfred Lord Tennyson, Mrs Beeton, Oscar Wilde, John Galsworthy and Rudyard Kipling.
