Event description

Description

Join Waterstones and the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain as we celebrate the third DallowayDay, this year with the theme of Queering Dalloway.

We’ll start by following in the footsteps of Bloomsburyians on their home turf, then look at how Mrs Dalloway has been adapted for stage and ballet, and in the evening explore queerness in the Bloomsbury circle and beyond.
All-event tickets include the walk and are limited to 25; however the panel events (including refreshments) can be booked separately (please see eventbrite below).
