Following last night's viewing of the wonderful Victorian ~The Art of Revival at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London, the VV's sights have now been fixed on a series of 'Victorian' themed films to be screened by the Department of History of Art at Birbeck College in London.

All screenings are free of charge, and will start on October 22nd, and then every subsequent Tuesday (until November 26). Each event will commence at 2pm, at the Birbeck Cinema ~ 43 Gordon Square, London, WC1H OPD.
