In these Covid restricted times, we all need something to look forward to, and I have these two exciting offerings planned for early next year. Have a look and be tempted:
Actor Adrian Lukis played the role of bad George Wickham in the acclaimed 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice. More recently he has produced a one-man stage show, depicting Wickham on the eve of his 60th birthday, looking back over the past, and showing us what sort of man he has become.
Saturday 14th August via Zoom
Find out more about how Adrian got his role as Wickham in 1995 and what it was like to act in the series, what impact it had on his acting career, and what he thinks of the famous character.
This event is being held on Sat 14 Aug, at 4pm (EST), cost $10 (AU). For further details and bookings, see https://susannahfullerton.com.au/meet-mr-wickham/
(12 – 16 Jan, 2022) – mini-tour
The handsome city of Hobart has some of the best-preserved Georgian buildings in the country. This 5-day mini-tour will be a fabulous mixture of lectures and visits. I will tell you about the Georgian era that shaped the city, the visit of Darwin to Tasmania, the convicts who turned into writers, and we will discuss an Australian classic set in Tasmania. There will be historic homes, Georgian art and music, an excursion to Bruny Island, and some fabulous food. Be transported to one of the great eras in British history with this special mini-tour – I’d love you to join me in Hobart.
The itinerary is still being planned, so there is no cost as yet, but it will fill up fast and you can register your interest now. For further details, see https://www.asatours.com.au/tours/georgian-hobart-literary-tour/
(28 Feb – 3 March, 2022) – special event
A wonderful exhibition is coming to Melbourne, exploring the life, works and legacy of iconic fashion designer Coco Chanel, considered one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
This 4-day event will be held in the Mt Macedon Ranges. I’ll present lectures on Coco, her writing friends Colette and Cocteau, the American writers she knew in Paris, the Ballet Russes with which she worked, ‘le Train Bleu’, the Ritz, and other aspects of that marvellous time in Paris. There will be French food, some local outings and some Edith Piaf.
