Keats House was built in 1814 and was the home of poet John Keats from 1818 to 1820. It was here that Keats wrote ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ and fell in love with Fanny Brawne, the girl next door. We tour the house with the curator and explore the collection of paintings, prints and artefacts associated with Keats. Our evening also includes a poetry reading from the RA’s poet in residence, Pele Cox.
£18, including a glass of wine.
