Augustus John caused scandal when he travelled round Edwardian England in a caravan, but he was not the only artist attracted to the travelling life in the early 20th century. Paul Nash, Laura Knight and Edward Seago are among the artists featured in a wide-ranging lecture that explores the lure of Romany culture, the circus and the open road. There will be an opportunity to visit the Augustus John: Drawn from Life exhibition beforehand from 5.30pm - 6.30pm.
