Millennials take on the Georgians during this informal event for those interested in history, art, architecture, enlightened conversation and a glass or two of wine.

This special late opening viewing of the Splendour! Art in Living Craftsmanship exhibition is a chance to meet up with fellow architects, young professionals, heritage enthusiasts, art lovers and philosophers at the Georgian Group’s Fitzroy Square HQ.

The event will have an exciting format, somewhere between Britain’s Got Talent and a University Union Debate. We still have some spaces for panelists and judges. If you think you have what it takes to answer the question above or judge the competition, please email with your 10-minute idea. The most compelling piece will win a bottle of champagne!

Places limited, reserve here:
