Victor Hugo Society Meeting Night

11 Oct 19:00 - 21:00

Les Cotils, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 1UU, Channel Islands View Map

The Society is proud of Guernsey’s deep connection with one of the world’s greatest writers and humanitarians, Victor Hugo, its resident for over 15 years.

The Victor Hugo in Guernsey Society promotes and celebrates that connection which gave birth, amongst other things, to Les Misérables. 

It meets on the second Wednesday of every month at 7.30pm at Les Cotils Centre, St. Peter Port. Entry is free. Members enjoy a diverse programme of talks, videos, films, discussions and readings.

The real-life Monsieur Madeleine

The first day Victor Hugo arrived in Guernsey in 1855 he began to keep detailed notebooks. What can these extraordinary records tell us about his time in the island? Fast forward to 1885 - the last words he ever wrote, ‘to love is to act’ - summed up his life. We’ll take a closer look through his notebooks at his charity in action in Guernsey.
