PARK STUDY DAYS
Mon, 3 Apr 2017, 10:30 – Mon, 22 May 2017, 16:30 BST
We're running a series of 5 park study days this spring to get you in the mood for next academic year's courses on the History of Public Parks. You may think you know these places quite well but we guarantee you'll learn a lot more!
Each study day will be £34 but although each is 'contained' and not necessarily dependent on the others, we are offering them initially at a group discount price of £145, a saving of £25 over the £170 cost of 5 individual tickets.
INDIVIDUAL DAYS ARE NOW AVAILABLE BY FOLLOWING THE LINKS BELOW
Monday 3rd April - Kensington Gardens - Letta Jones
Monday 10th April - Brompton Cemetery - Letta Jones
Monday 24th April - The Hill & The Pergola, Hampstead Heath - Stephen Smith
Monday 8th May - Wanstead and Valentines - Stephen Smith
Monday 22nd May - The Gardens of the City of London - Stephen Smith
Each day will start with a classroom based session on the park, its history and planting at the IHR from 10.30-1.00. Coffee/tea and light refreshments are available in the IHR Common Room but only after 10.30. The small coffee stall in South Block of Senate House [at the opposite end of the entrance hall to the IHR] is open earlier and you're welcome to bring a drink into the class with you.
After lunch there will be a guided tour of the park. Please bring your lunch or get something on route.There is a cafe at Golders Hill Park (for the Hill and Pergola visit) but not at the other park meeting places.
Transport is not provided but all the sites are easily accessible by public transport and full directions will be given for you to make your own way to the park meeting place. The afternoon visit will go ahead whatever the weather - so come prepared!
As usual the group will be small [max size 16] with lively illustrated lectures, opportunities for discussion, practical plant identification on site and further personal reading & research suggestions if you wish.
We often have a waiting list for places on our courses so if you book a place, but are unable to use it for any reason, then either find a friend who'd like to come [and tell us!] or email us and we will try and resell it if we can. In that's possible then we will be happy to refund your payment less Eventbrite's fees, otherwise we regret we cannot offer a refund. In the unlikely event of a cancellation of a lecture for any reason we will endeavour to arrange a replacement session as soon as possible.
