When Elizabeth Gaskell died in 1865, she was at work on Wives and Daughters, the novel many consider her finest. To mark the 150th anniversary of her death and the subsequent publication of her final novel, we are delighted to welcome one of the UK’s most successful screenwriters, Andrew Davies, whose superb BBC adaptation of Wives and Daughters remains a favourite with the public.

We also welcome the Garrick Players who will be reading scenes from the novel, dramatised by acclaimed local author Sherry Ashworth. This event is presented in partnership with the Gaskell Society and is sponsored by Specsavers.
