Dr Johnson's Bluestocking Salon

Dr Johnson's House

18/05/2017 18:30 - 21:00

The Georgian Dining Academy are delighted to offer, in collaboration with Dr Johnson's House, a special event to celebrate the literary legend's friends and acquaintances with a Bluestocking Salon. We will be working our Georgian magic throughout the floors of this historic home to pay homage to Samuel Johnson and his many fascinating friends. 17 Gough Square is the only remaining residence of Dr Johnson, and it was where he wrote his famous Dictionary. The house itself is an architectural gem, with a wealth of original features. It seems a fitting place to celebrate the intellectual and artistic life of Georgian London, a bespoke event to bring this giant of a man and the Georgian period back to life. Guests will enjoy an evening of readings of letters, books and poetry, as well as short talks on the leading ladies and gentlemen of the Bluestocking group. We hope as a guest you will participate, and please request our list of characters, of which you may choose to emulate by dress, readings (books, poetry, writings, articles, plays, quotations etc) or a five minute talk on a chosen character.
