Paul Lewis talk on Wilkie Collins

28 November, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm


This talk was planned for last May but had to be cancelled. We are now delighted to welcome the rearranged visit by Paul Lewis. Paul is probably best known as presenter of Radio 4 ‘Moneybox’ but he has also been Secretary of the Wilkie Collins Society for more than 20 years and has family associations with Ramsgate. 

He will be revealing new facts about Wilkie Collins’s close connection with Ramsgate, what he wrote or planned here, scenes in his novels, and where he stayed and even what he paid during two decades of trips to the seaside town. This will include why his affection moved from Broadstairs to Ramsgate and some new information about his family’s friendship with a local landlady! 

The rearranged date is Tuesday November 28th at the Royal Oak Hotel in Harbour Parade. As usual doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start. Booking is essential and you can do it here: https://bit.ly/PaulLewisTalk

There is a £2 booking fee for everyone and non-members of the Ramsgate Society are requested to pay an additional voluntary contribution on the door of £3.
