Lecture: Noble Ambitions: The Fall and Rise of the Country House
Sold Out
Tuesday 16 November - Adrian Tinniswood
 
Venue: Donald Insall Associates, 12 Devonshire Street, London, W1G 7AB
 
Adrian Tinniswood recreates a forgotten moment in the history of the English country house, in the perilous post-war years, when a curiously intimate collaboration between members of the crumbling old order and of the rising new took place, bringing to life the way in which a rakish, raffish yet aristocratic Swinging London interacted with traditional rural values in elegant drawing rooms, on windswept grouse moors and in the bedrooms of the stately homes of England.
 
Lecture starts 6.30pm (doors open 6pm). Wine included in ticket.
