1900 Great Cities 2 lecture series

Wednesday 09 January 6:30 PM to Monday 18 February 8:00 PM

Price for single delegate: £11.00

This series explores the history and architecture of seven great cities in Britain and Ireland, France and the United States in the Victorian age. We see how they adapted and responded to the buildings and environment that they inherited, met the challenges of hectic urban growth and profound social problems, and created much remarkable new architecture in the process. Series organised by Steven Brindle.
Lectures usually last about an hour and take place at the Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1 at 6.30pm. Doors open at 6pm and close at 6.25pm. 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.

1900.7 Lecture: Cambridge

Monday 18 February 6:30 PM - Monday 18 February 8:00 PM
Price - £11.00

Cambridge at the beginning of the Victorian age was still a moderately-sized town that the presence of the University had endowed with a remarkable range of buildings. Dr Simon Bradley, the Senior Editor of the Pevsner Architectural Guides at Yale University Press and the author of the recently published volume on Cambridgeshire, will take us through the Victorian age’s varied and fascinating impact on the architecture of Cambridge with a focus on some of the lesser-known buildings and monuments.
