‘Our celebration of English Eccentrics introduces

colourful and remarkable characters who have enlivened

and entertained us through the ages, and whose

originality and strength of character stands out now

more than ever in an age of mass-market conformity.


We bring you Joshua Norton, self-proclaimed Emperor of

the United States of America; William Cope, the ‘Green

Man’ of Brighton; William Buckland, who ate anything

and everything from a bluebottle to the heart of King

Louis XIV; and many equally odd and endearing



More familiar names include Lewis Carroll, Dr. Samuel

Johnson, Sir Thomas Beecham, Lord Byron, Beau

Brummell, Dr. William Spooner, and Oscar Wilde.
