Please note: as you will no doubt be aware COVID-19 is leading to many events being cancelled or postponed. Please check with the organisers of any event listed here to confirm it is going ahead as planned.

Celebrate the bicentenary of the publication of the first two cantos of Byron’s satirical epic, Don Juan. The poet caused a sensation when these verses first appeared in July 1819: the ‘immoral content’ led the work to be deemed a ‘filthy and impious poem’... but it was very popular with the general public. Join the Keats House Poetry Ambassadors for a special reading including works by Byron and some of his contemporaries. In partnership with the Byron Society.
