2024 Literary History Breaks at The Green Park with Richard Moore

Richard is a lecturer and creative writer, the author of over eighty plays and a number of musical works. He gained his first degree at the University of Cambridge and taught in schools for many years. In 1989 he gained his Ph.D. taking as his subject Christianity and Paganism in Victorian Fiction. He then went on to work as a Deputy Head and Head of English at Queen Ethelburga’s College, near York, before moving in 2000 into University teaching.

Since January 2000 Richard has been a part-time lecturer at Newcastle and Sunderland Universities and has run various courses for adults, particularly at Higham Hall in the Lake District. His particular academic interests are American Drama, the works of Shakespeare and Jane Austen, Irish Literature, Victorian Music Theatre and the 20th century Theatre of the Absurd. 


Rule Britannia ? The British Abroad.

From Thursday the 18th of January until the morning of Monday the 22nd of January 2024.

Download Break Programme

There are countless books featuring the colonial and ex-patriate British. We can only cover a handful but those few include wit, comedy, serious political issues and some beautiful writing, often tinged with the poetry of culture and landscape. I have concentrated on books featuring expatriate British protagonists, though there are some excellent ones where the British are significant but seen from within the foreign culture’s context. 

A History of the Short Story.

From Monday the 19th of February until the morning of Friday the 23rd of February 2024.

Download Break Programme This course will offer a comprehensive history of the short story, right back to the first one to survive from Ancient Egypt. The emphasis, however, will be on British short stories written between the 19th century and the present. As a sample of foreign writers we shall also use tales by Edgar Allan Poe, Chekhov and Maupassant.

There is no supplementary charge for single accommodation on any of our activity breaks, and as normal, we can arrange free transport ( on your day of arrival and on your day of departure ) between the hotel and the bus and railway stations.

Details about all of our activity breaks are readily available - either download a copy from this section, ask for them during you stay, or just telephone the hotel and ask us to forward a programme for whatever activity you are interested in.
