Description

Wednesday 17th April 6pm, lecture starts at 6.30pm

Finding my place: The Rediscovery and Restoration of Hagley ParkJ with Joe Hawkins MA, Head of Landscape at Hagley Hall Park, Worcestershire

In this illustrated talk Joe Hawkins will reveal his journey of discovery during the ongoing restoration of this once celebrated Georgian landscape which had lain neglected for a century and a half. Hagley Park’s main period of development occurred from 1747 and in its heyday drew visitors from around the world. This ambitious restoration will return it to its 18th Century glory. The park has now been designated a Grade I registered park of exceptional national importance and Joe is currently writing up his PhD thesis on the park.

Your lecture ticket includes a drink and nibbles.


NB: In order to further understand the wonderful landscape at Hagley Park the Gardens Trust have also organised a visit to Hagley Park on Wednesday 1st May 2019. Joe will be our guide for the afternoon tour followed by a cream tea at Hagley Hall. Book your place via the Gardens Trust events page. Please note numbers are limited to 20 places for this tour.
