The Gardens Trust Autumn Lecture: Pleasure and Production
11th October 2017, 6.30pm The Birmingham & Midland Institute
Dianne Long: Garden and Landscape Historian
Pleasure and Production
Dianne’s lecture will explore the landscapes of eighteenth century industrialists, whose gardens have attracted little attention compared with those of the landed gentry and aristocracy. Proximity to their industrial activity was crucial for such entrepreneurs, especially in the initial growth period, but what influenced the development of their pleasure landscapes alongside the productive, did the two interact in any way and was there anything distinctive in what they created? Dianne will discuss these themes with particular reference to the Midlands and ceramic manufacturers in Staffordshire.
Gardens Trust/County Garden Trust members £10 – Non members £12 inc. Glass of wine/juice.
