Lecture ‘Arcadian Friends ’ – by Tim Tim Richardson

The 18th-century landscape garden is the only art form to have originated wholly in Britain which then went on to influence the rest of the world. Tim Richardson here tells the extraordinary story of the gang of eccentrics who created these gardens, a small group of politicians and poets, farmers and businessmen, heiresses and landowners whose obsession with their gardens went on to change the course of artistic history.

Tim Richardson, author of Sweets: The History of Temptation, is the world’s first international confectionery historian. He also writes about gardens, landscape and theatre, and contributes to the Daily Telegraph, Country Life, The Idler, House & Garden, Garden Design Journal and Wallpaper. He lives in North London.

After the lecture we will serve the famous Hoby afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones, cakes and tea. There will also be an opportunity to visit Steve and Diane Horsfield’s garden

If you would like to make a cake for the tea, please contact Elizabeth (01162705711).
