Members' Evening of Short Talks

Wednesday 16 January 2019

Organiser: Hugh Dixon

A rustic kitchen

After the successf of last year's experiment, we repeated our January alternative to a full lecture, with an evening is devoted to short talks giving members an opportunity to address favourite subjects, share enthusiasms, outline early research or simply fly architectural-historical kites.

Topics ranged from the 18th century to our own times, from vernacular to highly formal and to the unexpected. Speakers were:

  • Sue Ward on How not to build a bridge
  • Beverley Bagnall on John Johnstone, Architect
  • John Gall on Waste Not Want Not
  • and Tom Yellowley on Mechanics Institutes

and the evening was organised by Hugh Dixon
