David Coates receives funding from the Humanities Research Fund for Shelley family project

David Coates has been awarded £2000 impact/ pump-priming money from the Humanities Research Fund for his project exploring the tangible and mythical legacies of the Shelley family in Bournemouth and Boscombe. He has a public-facing event at the Shelley Theatre in Boscombe on 29 February 2020 which includes presentations from Dr Stephen Hebron (curator of the Shelley collection at the Bodleian) and Lord Abinger (the current Shelley title and estate holder). There’ll also be hands-on transcription and research activities, with the day culminating with a staged reading of a play by Percy Florence Shelley, son of Mary and Percy Bysshe Shelley, performed by members of Bournemouth Little Theatre. It’ll be the first time that the play has been heard in over 150 years – and what a treat that it’ll take place in Percy Florence Shelley’s former private theatre, for which the play was originally intended!
