As part of Brighton & Hove Open Door, Alexia Lazou will be leading her Aubrey Beardsley tour on Sunday 9 September at 2pm & Sunday 16 September at 11am. Meet outside WH Smith’s bookshop on Brighton Station concourse, Queens Road. The tour is free and there is no need to book.
Join Alexia for a gentle 90 minute stroll through Brighton, exploring the buildings and places associated with the early life of artist Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898), famous for his innovative black and white illustrations. 2018 marks the 120th anniversary of Beardsley’s death at the tragically early age of twenty-five. The tour concludes with an optional visit to The Yellow Book café/bar on York Place.
Beardsley was a young worshipper at The Church of the Annunciation in Washington Street, Hanover, during the 1880s. On Sunday 16 Sept, from 2pm Alexia Lazou will be in the church for an informal drop-in session looking at his life and work, with some of her Beardsleyana on show.
