The Victorian mania for stories

Brunchtime lecture with glass of Bucks Fizz and free entry to Kensington Palace afterwards

Discover the prominence of Victorian storytellers and forms like penny dreadfuls, novels and serials with author and great-great-granddaughter of Dickens, Lucinda Hawksley. What impact did the rise of literacy have on storytelling and cultural appetites? How did Queen Victoria respond to the novels of Dickens compared to the middling classes and how did education shape the world of reading and storytellers?
