Event description
“The Gardens and Park at Ashridge: their Evolution and Development” - a talk by Mick Thompson MA, Gardens Manager, Ashridge Business School

About this Event

Our Spring Lecture this year will be given by Mick Thompson, Gardens Manager at Ashridge Business School. Mick has an MA in Garden History and is currently pursuing a PhD on the subject of 'Humphry Repton and the Architects'. He spoke at the 2018 national Repton and Horticulture Conference in Sheffield about Repton’s development of the Flower Garden.

Mick will be referring to aspects of his research as he takes us through the development of the gardens at Ashridge, which surround the college’s largely Georgian buildings. We also will get an insight into the various challenges associated with simultaneously maintaining the gardens and managing the college within the setting of a publicly accessible wider estate.

Time: 7 for 7.30pm. Refreshments will be available after the lecture.
