Have A Comfy Look At George Eliot Country

Residents and tourists are being given the chance to take a look at the different sights of George Eliot country in comfort in Nuneaton next week.

Portraits of the famous writer, her friends and family will feature in the hour-long slide show in the plush surrounds of the council chamber on 19 October.

There will also be shots of the buildings and areas of Nuneaton and Bedworth that she would have known, as well as pictures of what the public can see today.

George Eliot, who lived at Griff House for the first 21 years of her life when known as Mary Ann Evans, is a major tourist attraction to the area, bringing visitors from as far as Japan and America to the borough.

But Tourism Officer Rose Selwyn said the show was also a chance for local people to find out more about the area they live in.

She said:

Its the story of George Eliot, her life and a tour around George Eliot country and it can be an insight for people who live locally who may not know about the history of the area.

Tickets for the event cost 2 and are available from Rose Selwyn at the Town Hall, Nuneaton, on 024 7637 6490. They can be bought on the door. More information from
