Visit D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum Free

Lawrence WashhouseNational Heritage Open Days are back next month and the D.H Lawrence Birthplace Museum will be one of a host of Broxtowe heritage sites which will open its doors for free.

Visitors to the Museum, on Victoria Street in Eastwood can enjoy a free taster tour of the ground floor and take part in an interactive demonstration of the Victorian Washhouse on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September between 11.00am and 4.00pm.   11th September is a particularly special date as it marks Lawrence’s 131st birthday.

Last tours of the day start at 3.40pm. There is no need to book. 

The event is part of the D.H Lawrence Festival of Culture with a variety of arts and cultural events taking place in Eastwood, Nuthall, Stapleford, Beeston and beyond.  Running from 25th August until the end of September, the programme includes a beer festival, comedy, exhibitions, pedal powered cinema, family fun days, a traditional fair, music events and much more.

The Festival is coordinated by Broxtowe Events, The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum team and a festival steering group.
