Time to visit Lawrence White Peacock exhibition

AN EXHIBITION celebrating 100 years since the publication of DH Lawrence’s first novel, The White Peacock, is being held at Durban House.

The White Peacock exhibition has returned to the heritage centre in Mansfied Road for the second year running. It was launched last year to mark 100 years since the novel’s publication in 1911.

The novel, set in the countryside surrounding Lawrence’s hometown of Eastwood, demonstrates the writer’s passion and knowledge of the area and how he used real locations in his fiction from the outset.

Audio devices are provided along the exhibition route to take people into the lives of the main characters and show the relationships that Lawrence tried to convey within this rural backdrop.

The exhibition contains photographs of key locations from the novel and showcases contributions from the University of Nottingham’s Lawrence Research Centre. Entry costs £3 and it will run until April 15.
