Hosted by academic and broadcaster Peggy Reynolds (BBC Radio 3 Adventures in Poetry), in discussion with art historian Jan Marsh, the event will also feature special live performances of some classic poetry from the likes of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Browning and Swinburne.

This salon event will also feature a special live piano recital of composers influenced by the Pre Raphaelites, including Faure, Delius and Schumann, by celebrated pianist Prach Boondiskulchok.
