I'm delighted to have been invited to attend a series of talks on Victoriana and Steampunk at Kensington Palace in London, but sadly have my hands full at the moment. Next time!
If any of you are curious about the impact of Queen Victoria’s reign on culture, philosophy, and society, give this a go. And Buck's Fizz is included (Mimosas to the Americans).
I asked the organizers about dress code and they responded:
"Dressing up is always welcomed and would be brilliant! We are all about the theatrics and storytelling. Please do encourage them to come along dressed up. A ticket includes a glass of Bucks Fizz, plus entry to the palace afterwards to explore."
So there you have it!

A new Brunchtime Lectures series on Victoriana takes a look at the impact of Queen Victoria’s reign on culture, philosophy, and society. Tickets include a glass of Bucks Fizz and entry to Kensington Palace.
