Event description

Description

Now home to the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education, Madingley Hall has functioned at various times as a hunting lodge, a family home and a royal residence. Discover the fascinating past (and present!) of this 16th-century mansion, in this informal lecture series.

Each lecture will begin at 6.00pm, and will be followed by a buffet supper at 7.00pm where you can meet the speaker and chat to other attendees.


30 July- Madingley Hall Gardens: Past, present and future- Richard Gant (Head Gardener)

Richard will trace the evolution of the garden identifying the core features which form the framework of the site today. Historic connections between the University and the garden will lead to the work undertaken since the Institute of Continuing Education assumed resposibility in 1975, how the walled garden has been developed and planted leading to thoughts for the future. The finale will celebrate a starr studded line up of our special plants.

13 August- James Stuart: Radical liberalism, ‘non-gremial students’ and continuing education- Dr Nigel Kettley

James Stuart was a significant figure in Cambridge's history - a prominent engineer, politician and educator, who founded the University's Institute of Continuing Education in 1873. Find out more about his pioneering work, with sociologist Dr Nigel Kettley.


The ticket price includes the lecture which begins at 6.00pm, with a glass of house wine/prosecco and buffet supper to follow.

The grounds will be open from 4.30pm and if you would like to treat yourself to an afternoon tea please contact enquiry@madingleyhall.co.uk
