The Victor Hugo In Guernsey Society

Victor Hugo Conference 2018

The Society will be hosting a Weekend Conference in St Peter Port, including talks, lectures and tours in the great poet’s footsteps.



St. Peter Port, home of Victor Hugo during his 15 year exile, will welcome leading Hugo experts from France, United Kingdom and USA for 2 days of illustrated presentations on aspects of Victor Hugo’s life, works and family.
Enjoy tours, debates, exhibitions and talks in the relaxed atmosphere of Guernsey – so loved by Hugo.

In Guernsey in 1866 Victor Hugo wrote a short comedy with a social conscience, L’Intervention. Not published until its rediscovery in the 1950s, we have translated the play into English and will stage it during the Conference. It will be introduced by Florence Naugrette, author of The Theatre of Victor Hugo. Acclaimed local drama group GADOC will start the evening with songs from Les Misérables.


Becoming a member will enable you to attend regular events, assist with the society’s  projects and learn more about Victor Hugo’s time in Guernsey.
