Wilde and friends

London in the 1890’s was synonymous with decadence. As the last decade of the century drew to a close, there was a flowering of intense creativity by a coterie of brilliant, self-destructive, daring darlings and dandies.

Join cult writers, Antony Clayton and Nina Antonia to meet both the famous figureheads and some of the lesser known doomed doyens of decadent London's fashionable and influential milieu.

Book your free place for Wilde and friends via Eventbrite.
