Join us for a lively panel discussion, chaired by Associate Professor Richard Gaunt from the Department of History at University of Nottingham.

The poet Lord Bryon died 200 years ago, in April 1824, while fighting for Greek independence. To mark this bicentenary a wide programme of events is being held throughout Nottinghamshire, with this lecture contributing through bringing together experts on different elements of his life and work.

The lecture will open with a welcome from Greek-born Councillor Pavlos Kotsonis, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture. Six guest speakers will then present different viewpoints and perspectives on the life and legacy of Lord Byron, followed by a question-and-answer session.

For more information on who qualifies for concessions, please visit our booking tickets page.

This event has been created in collaboration with The Institute for Policy and Engagement, University of Nottingham, in partnership with Newstead Abbey, Nottingham City Museums and Galleries.
