Neat16: A Novel Trial, Lady Chatterley's Lover

High Pavement, Nottingham, Notts, NG1 1HN
Lady Chatterley's Lover


A Novel Trial: Lady Chatterley’s Lover, 2nd June 2016, Galleries of Justice Museum

On 10th November 1960, bookshops over England sold out of Penguin’s first run (200,000 copies) of the novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover on the first day of publication. DH Lawrence’s controversial book tells of Lady Chatterley’s passionate affair with Mellors, the family gamekeeper.

In 1959 the government introduced the Obscene Publications Act that said any book considered obscene by some but that could be shown to have “redeeming social merit” might be published. Lawrence’s explicit novel was first published in Italy in 1928 and in Paris the following year. It had been banned in the UK until November 1960.

This dramatic retelling in a courtroom setting at the Galleries of Justice Museum covers the trial that gripped the nation over the course of six days in 1960.
