The Trustees of the Friends are delighted that this year’s Winter Meeting will be an illustrated lecture by the distinguished landscape architect Hal Moggridge, who will speak on “Capability Brown at Blenheim”. He plans to set the landscaping work at Blenheim into the context of Brown’s background and career. He will also say something about the planting restoration work that his practice, Colvin & Moggridge, carried out at Blenheim Palace for the late Duke from 1981 to 1999.
The meeting will be held at 8 p.m. on Friday 18th November in the ‘Performance Space’ (2nd floor, Rooms 2.09/2.10, main building) at Ruskin College, Dunstan Road, Headington, OX3 9BZ.
Non-members are welcome: there is no charge, but donations are welcome. The lecture will be followed by refreshments.
