Online Talk: Chocolate-box Cranford: An Idyll?

Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford is famed for its portrayal of picture-perfect English village life, and its well-loved illustrations by Hugh Thomson help to paint this chocolate-box picture.

But is there more to Cranford than the idyllic image suggests? Find out in this online winter’s evening talk by Anthony Burton, which accompanies our exciting new Cranford exhibition in 2021.
