Lord Gowrie on Dance

There’s a long piece by Grey Gowrie on “The End of Dance” in the June 2011 issue of Standpoint magazine. It is printed in full at http://standpointmag.co.uk/node/3937/full. Although I’ve not yet read it (I'm keeping that pleasure for this evening) it looks as if it is heavily based on Lord Gowrie’s 2010 Anthony Powell Lecture (19 November 2010 at The Wallace Collection).

[Note: The text in the online version is correct. Apparently two pages in the print version were transposed.]

Anthony Powell Conference 2011

The Anthony Powell Society are pleased to announce full details and booking information for the 6th Biennial Anthony Powell Conference on Friday 2 to Sunday 4 September 2011 at the Naval & Military Club, St James's Square, London SW1.

The conference programme contains over a dozen very varied papers on all aspects of Powell’s milieu and work as well as invited talks from Ferdinand Mount (Powell’s nephew), Glenmore Trenear-Harvey and Simon Vance.

There will also be a buffet reception, a guided pub crawl of Fitzrovia, bus tour of London places associated with AP and a finally Sunday Lunch.

Rather than reproduce all the conference details here you can find them on the Conference 2011 page of the Anthony Powell Society website and in the downloadable Booking Leaflet. Members and non-members are equally welcome at what promises to be a great weekend.

We very much hope to see you there!
