The School of English at the University of Kent offers a free journey to Derek Jarman’s garden in Dungeness on May 15th 2019. Jarman bought Prospect Cottage, a small fishermen’s hut, shortly after his HIV diagnosis and there he created his beautiful and well known garden of Dungeness. The landscape around Dungeness is one of the largest expanded of shingle in Europe and is not comparable to others in the UK.

This day trip will be split into two parts: in the morning from 10:00-12:00 on campus the group will explore excerpts of Jarman’s writing about Dungeness, his artistic practice, the garden, and his sexuality. Then, from 12:00-16:00, they will travel to Dungeness to visit his garden and the surrounding area.
