Commemorating the Half-Centenary of E. M. Forster’s life

Dorking Museum is excited to announce a collaborative exhibition with Nottingham Trent University PHD students Heather Green and Sean Richardson.

The exhibition, held in 2020, will examine the impetus and aftermath of literary favourites such A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910), A Passage to India (1924) and Maurice (1971), as well as bring Forster’s lesser known works to public attention.

The exhibition will also explore the forgotten relationship between Forster and the local community: his charity work, his pageant plays, his support for refugees.

E. M. Forster lived in Abinger, so Dorking Museum is the natural home to this exciting exhibition.
