Friends Evening – Judith Hibbert will give a talk on Victorian Garden

Date(s) - 18/11/2021
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Leicester Bowling Club

This year the Friends Evening will not follow the usual format and Judith Hibbert, who was due to speak at our Autumn lecture in 2020, will talk about Victorian Gardens.

The focus of Judith’s presentation is on the emergence and social significance of the Victorian suburban garden which was a product of the growth of the middle classes. It will include the reasons for its development; the social significance; design /style and key garden writers who influenced the designs; and the early development of the gardening industry.

Due to Covid restrictions refreshments at the Friends evening this year will be limited to tea, coffee and cake rather than the buffet we usually have. Nevertheless we will make this a jolly end to the year and we can all start to look forward to 2022.
