Lecture: Lord Bute and the Falkland Estate

Monday 26 February — Turn up or book and save
6.30pm to 8pm. A lecture to be given by Marietta Crichton Stuart. Last in our Private Realms 3 lecture series organised by Steven Brindle.

John Patrick Crichton Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute, was probably the most prolific and remarkable aristocratic builder of the Victorian age, famous for mhis work in South Wales and at properties including Dumfries House and Mount Stuart. Lord Bute’s great grand-daughter Marietta Crichton-Stuart introduces us to another, much less well-known area of his patronage, the Falkland estate in the Kingdom of Fife, where his work included the sensitive restoration of the 16th-century Renaissance palace, and the Arts and Crafts redecoration of William Burn’s Jacobean-style House of Falkland in 1839. At the Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1 at 6.30pm. Doors open at 6pm. Wine will be available before the lectures (not included in ticket prices). The venue is conveniently placed for Holborn and Russell Square tube stations and numerous bus services. Tickets £11 on the door, if available, or cheaper if you book 6 or more.
