Jules Verne 150th Anniversary

Members of DDS at the Jules Verne Event

Members of DDS were asked to perform a short piece at a recent Jules Verne event thrown by the local Archive Society, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the passage of Jules Verne and Aristide Hignard through Oakley in 1859.

The piece was a short re-enactment of Jules Verne & his companion Hignard’s arrival at Inzievar House.

An article covering the celebrations and DDS’s contribution (with pictures) has been published in Volume 2 of the Verniana (a multilingual online open access journal dedicated to Jules Verne studies) which you can see here:
