In launching the Centre we had the good fortune to collaborate in two projects marking the 150th anniversary of Clare’s death.

Crafting Clare

A Poetic Journey:  The Life & Writings of John Clare

Peterborough Museum, 10 May-22 June 2014

With Peterborough Archivist Richard Hunt we co-curated this major exhibition based on Clare’s enormous manuscript archive.

On the opening day of the exhibition we gave a series of talks as part of a special day of family activities, Crafting Clare.
