Event description

Description

Ralph Beyer (1921-2008) was an inscriptional carver best known for his huge ‘Tablets of the Word’ in Coventry Cathedral. He was probably the first letter carver in 20th-century Britain to deliberately depart from formal regularity. His approach owed much to his background: a childhood in Weimar Germany, then forced into exile by the rise pf Nazism, a period in Eric Gill’s workshop, and later associations with Henry Moore and Nikolaus Pevsner.

Co-hosted by the Twentieth Century Society.

John Neilson has worked as a letter carver and lettering designer since 1991 and has made a number of large public inscriptions.

Open to all. Tickets £13, or £9 A+C members and concessions. Book £13 Tickets here. If you are a member or a concession, please email enquiries@acetrust to reserve a £9 ticket.
