Alice Loxton – Uproar!

Join historian Alice Loxton on a scathingly witty romp through a Georgian London at the height of a golden age of scandal as viewed through the acid pens of its leading caricaturists – Thomas Rowlandson, James Gillray and Isaac Cruikshank. Presented with a world of royal madness, political intrigue, revolution and the birth of modern celebrity, the trio turned to bawdy satire. Their lampooning of those in power, from the Prince Regent to Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, established an English tradition that lives on to this day – to the annoyance of the mighty and the merriment of the populace. 

Chaired by Anna Disley.
