The Lewis Carroll Society holds regular meetings throughout the year.

Westminster Abbey visit with the Ruskin Society

Westminster Abbey, London

3 October 2015

Although this is not a Lewis Carroll Society meeting, LCS members might be interested in attending.

John Ruskin knew Westminster Abbey well. He often visited and sketched there and the Abbey hosted a memorial service after his death on January 25 1900.

The Ruskin Society is therefore delighted to be hosting a visit to Westminster Abbey, including a guided tour led by experienced volunteers, allowing us to enjoy the architecture and history of this historic building. The tour will last for approximately one hour and will conclude at the memorial to Ruskin in Poets’ Corner.

Guests will then have some time to themselves before the Abbey closes at 14.30 when we will then be able to enjoy tea in the Cellarium Cafe

'Alice in Wonderland and her Lost Boys: From Oxford and the Rabbit Hole to the Somme and Beyond' a talks by Marietta Crichton Stuart

Art Workers' Guild London

30 October 2015

Marietta Crichton Stuart, who is giving this talk, was brought up in Scotland and, after gaining a degree in Medieval History, had a career in the newspaper industry. Sometimes referred to as the family archivist, she now works as a freelance researcher and historian, and as a ‘London Blitz’ walk guide. Her current work includes research for a biography of her grandfather, an MP, killed in the Great War. Her interest in the ‘Alice’ story arose following a visit to the Western Front cemetery, then she subsequently discovered various family, Christ Church and Scottish connections.

Further details will be given nearer the time.
