Event description

Description

Join author Kate Forsyth to hear about her spellbinding reimagining of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ set amongst the wild bohemian circle of Pre-Raphaelite artists and poets.

In 1890, the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones finished a monumental series of paintings inspired by ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Greeted with ecstasy by the public, it sold for a record 15,000 guineas and made the artist a rich and famous man. Told by the voices of four extraordinary women, the wives and mistresses and muses of the famous artists of the Pre-Raphaelite circle , Beauty in Thorns tells the story of love, desire, obsession and tragedy that lies behind the creation of this famous depiction of Sleeping Beauty.

Drinks and light refreshments will be served from 6pm-6.30pm.
