Celebrating Lord Byron

Harrow School marked the 200th anniversary of Lord Byron's death with a series of talks.

Lord George Byron was educated at Harrow from 1801-1805 and is now regarded as one of the major figures of the Romantic movement and one of the greatest English poets.

Boys from ten different societies gave talks on Byron’s life over the course of three days, and the week will culminated on 19 April, exactly 200 years on from Lord Byron’s death, with a talk in Speech Room from former House Master of The Park and a Byron expert, Peter Hunter.
