Annual Christmas Lunch, 2019
The East India Club, 12.30-3.30pm
Join us for our annual Christmas lunch. This year’s festive celebration of Christmas and Byron will include a three course meal, wine, and a talk from the fabulous William St Clair, British historian, senior research fellow at the Institute of English Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London, and author.
Pre-lunch drinks will be served from 12.30pm and the lunch at 1.00pm
Tickets cost £35.00.
As the anniversary year of the first publication of Don Juan comes to an end, William St Clair will remind us of the books that made it, by far, the best selling work of the age.
He will show us some actual examples of the tiny piracies that enabled tens of thousand of readers to access Don Juan although they were cut off from most other new works of the time.
More details about the menu will be available shortly.
