Event description

Description

This talk by Sally Jeffery will tell the story of the creation of the Mansion House, the home and workplace of the Lord Mayor of the City of London. It was built in the middle of the 18th century to the designs of George Dance the Elder, and was an unusual combination of fashionable town house, office and magistrates’ court. Since then, it has undergone a number of changes reflecting structural problems, design weaknesses and changes of function, but much of its original design and interesting interior details survive surprisingly well.

Includes wine reception.

Refunds will only be given if places are cancelled more than 48hours prior to an event (minus the booking fee) or if an event is cancelled by GHL.
