Blenheim Lecture 2020: Dr Simon Bradley
October 8 @ 6:30 pm - 9:45 pm
Blenheim Lecture 2020: Dr Simon Bradley on revising Pevsner
Dr Bradley, Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries and of St John’s College, Oxford, is an expert on historic architecture and has published widely on buildings ranging from churches to our great Victorian railway stations. He is editor for a number of the new revisions of Pevsner’s architectural guide – members may have seen his new editions on Cambridgeshire, Westminster, and the City of London. He will tell us about his work and, in particular, about what he has learned in his latest task – the revision for Oxford and Oxfordshire. We can look forward to gaining new insights into buildings many of which we will know and which we may well wish to revisit in the light of his talk.
As is our custom, we shall start the evening with a drinks reception and buffet supper in the Orangery of the Palace.
The Trust is grateful to his Grace, the Duke of Marlborough for generously allowing us the use of the Palace.
Booking will be opened in due course: Members will be notified.
