The Building of England

From awe-inspiring Norman castles to semi-detached suburbia, the chief executive of English Heritage explores how the architecture of this small island has influenced the world.

How have the buildings of England evolved over 1000 years? What do they reveal about the beliefs and aspirations of the people who commissioned them, built them and lived in them? And how have structural techniques and aesthetic taste adapted and developed over the centuries?

In this fascinating talk, Simon Thurley puts into context the significance of a country’s architectural history and unearths how it is inextricably linked to the cultural past – and present.

Wed 14 May, 8pm , St Michael & All Angels Church. Tickets £10
