Garden history lectures at the SAHAAS library

October to December 2017

By Liz Rolfe

PLEASE NOTE: as of Sunday 1 October only two places are available - see below.

Following the success of the course in garden history mounted by the Society in March this year, Kate Harwood has agreed to give a series of three short lectures this autumn. These will explore particular topics which fired the imaginations of the spring group. This is the programme:

Thursday 5 October - GARDEN CITIES - 0 places
The radical, green alternative to insanitary and congested 19th century urban development.

Thursday 9 November* - PLANT HUNTERS (and their grisly fates!) - 2 places
The courageous men - botanists and frontiersmen – who brought us home our wealth of garden plants.

Thursday 7 December - THE LANDSCAPES OF JANE AUSTEN AND HUMPHRY REPTON - 0 places
In Austen’s books the Georgian landscape is as important as its drawing rooms. 

Cost: just £5 per talk; book all three for £12.

Time: 2.30pm; each talk lasting one hour

Venue: SAHAAS library, off the Sandridge Road

*Please also note that the date for the 'Plant Hunters' talk has been rearranged to 9 November rather than 2 November as originally advertised in the August newsletter.
