In conjundtion with Palace Green Library's exhibition Between Worlds: Folklore and Fairy Tales from Northern Britain, Gail-Nina's lecture on Monday, February 12th addresses the question "How do you recognise a fairy?" More information on the Talks page.
Gail-Nina also returns to the Black Gate for the first time in 2018, to answer another question about the identification of magical persons: in real life, a witch might just look like the old lady down the road, but in popular culture we need to know a baddie when we see one.

After two sold-out lectures on Paul Nash, an essential guide to the exhibition of his work at the Laing, Gail-Nina turns her attention to David Bomberg. Coming to the Laing in February is the first significant exhibition of his work in more than a decade. Gail-Nina's special lecture on Wednesday 28th February, to coincide with the exhibition, is also likely to sell out, so book now with the Lit & Phil, to be sure of a place. Booking is also open for Gail-Nina's triads of talks examining different aspects of a movement or theme in art. Details on the Talks page.
