Elizabeth Gaskell's House
From her unloved home in Kensington, her love of the ‘North country’ drove her to pursue a life of freedom in the Lake District. In this talk, National Trust curator Helen Antrobus will explore Potter’s lifelong affiliation with the north, her relationship with her family’s unitarian faith, and the famous Manchester family that this brought her close to.
Join National Trust curator Helen Antrobus for a special talk celebrating much loved children’s author-illustrator Beatrix Potter, her journey from Kensington to the North, and her ties to the Gaskell family.
Curator and historian Helen Antrobus recently co-curated the retrospective exhibition Beatrix Potter: Drawn To Nature at the V&A.
