Arcadian England: An Age of Opulence – Part of The Merchant’s House Spring Study Series, by Christopher Rogers, at the Town Hall
30 March 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
The Seven Years War and the consequent emergence of the first British Empire had an immense impact on ‘taste’.
Furthermore the burgeoning agricultural and industrial revolutions provided the architect with new patrons and great disposable wealth.
Add to that the popularity of the Grand Tour, now that transport was becoming easier, and you have all the ingredients for lavish new buildings and landscaping.
Tickets – Standard fee: £16.00, Friends of MH fee: £13.00 – available from the Merchant’s House website
This talk will now take place in the Assembly Room (upstairs) in Marlborough Town Hall
