A ticket application form is contained in the documents that have just been mailed to all members.

The AGM will again be held at The George Inn, one of the oldest surviving galleried coaching inns dating back to the sixteenth century, and also boasting literary and theatrical links. Details of the closest tube stations and car parks can be found in this review of the inn.

This year we are very excited to announce that Professor Park Honan, Emeritus Professor of English and American Literature at Leeds University and a Vice-President of The Marlowe Society, has agreed to give a lecture entitled Dangerous Marlowe in the afternoon following the AGM. Professor Honan has written books on a diverse range of literary subjects, including critically acclaimed biographies of both Marlowe (Christopher Marlowe: Poet and Spy (2005)) and Shakespeare.
