Some New Bicentenary Events

Having been away from home for some time, I am late to announce this concert, but there will be another on on 23 March:

However, Benjamin Charvner has kindly sent me this version of Cold Are the Crabs for your listening pleasure.

I have also added several events to the list of bicentenary celebrations:

  • ‘How Pleasant to Know Mr Lear!’  Edward Lear, Tennyson Family Friend, Lincoln Central Library. Until 29 May. Free admission. List of works on display.
  • ‘Too vainy and bumptious’?  The story of Edward Lear’s Illustrations of Tennyson’s Poetry. The Collection, Lincoln. 14 April ― 30 September.
  • A celebration of Edward Lear with Roger McGough, Michael Rosen and others at the British Library. 13 May.
  • To celebrate the Bi-centenary of the birth of Edward Lear, a small selection of his drawings and watercolours from the British Museum collection will be on display in the Prints and Drawings Gallery, Room 90, from 14 May.
  • Celebration of Edward Lear in Islington, the borough he was born in, with Michael Rosen. 29 May.

I may be forgetting something, go check.
