Online Event: “We’ve got a house…” Remaking Elizabeth Gaskell’s House
Elizabeth Gaskell’s House
27th April 2022
In 2014, 84 Plymouth Grove was transformed from a shell of student accommodation back into the beautiful Victorian family home it had been for novelist Elizabeth Gaskell and her family.
Join John Williams, Project Manager of the restoration, for an irreverent look behind the scenes as Elizabeth Gaskell’s House was brought to life. Find out about the meticulous research for original paint colours, chintz patterns, wood patterns, handwoven carpets and more – all in the house where literary classics Cranford, Ruth, North and South and Wives and Daughters were written.
We’ve got a house… is an online event only.
