Thursday 6 October, 5.30pm Garden tour with 6.30pm drinks reception for 7.00pm talk
Professor Timothy Mowl (University of Buckingham)
‘Mowl walks the landscapes whose gradual unfolding he charts, instantly lifting his prose from the wryly academic to the genuine celebratory’. (Times Literary Supplement)
Join us for an evening with Professor Timothy Mowl, an architectural and landscape historian, to rediscover some of Hampshire’s lost landscapes from the exquisite landscape of Lancelot Brown at Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey) to the unlikely sketch of poet Alexander Pope as a virile god. As an author of the fourteenth volume of the Historic Gardens of England series, Timothy’s talk will explore his tantalising, erudite and entertaining journey through Hampshire’s rich garden history, bringing to life a thousand years of Hampshire landscapes.
Tickets: £11; Students/Friends £8.50 (includes drinks and canapés)
