Professor Vickery contacted me yesterday to say she had linked Rae’s lovely  review of her Fitzroy Square  lecture at her website.

She thought you might also like to know of her other forthcoming appearances, and so I list them here for you all to note.

She is doing a reading and holding a question and answer session  at the Geffrye  Museum in London on 4 March.

As I have already pointed out, and am hoping to attend, Professor Vickery is also  giving a lecture at  Fairfax House, York on the 18th March. Sadly, she thinks this event is now fully booked, but do note she is hoping to be able to do a repeat performance of the lecture the following morning,  the 19th March, as there are already 20 people on waiting list. Do phone Fairfax House  to see if they can book you a place, or put you on the waiting list  if you are keen on attending it.

On the 19th  May she is speaking on the subject of  on private lives at the Brighton Festival , and is  contributing to what looks like being a lovely interiors & garden history day at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire.

As to radio appearances, on Wednesay the 3rd March, Professor Vickery is appearing on BBC Radio 4 on Thinking Allowed, talking about 18th century servants with Laurie Taylor and Carolyn Steedman : this will be available on the Listen Again feature and as a podcast.

Finally I ought to  pass on Professor Vickery’s comments about our little community here:

I cannot tell you how cheering it is to know that there’s so much genuine and knowledgable enthusiasm for the 18th century out there.

I think that sums us up nicely!
