Event Details

£15 (£10 for Young Georgian members)

The Georgian re-invention of the Wardour landscape was the magnum opus of Henry Arundell, 8th Baron Arundell of Wardour. As well as examining these works as exemplars of the Picturesque Movement, Frederick Hervey-Bathurst will contextualise Lord Arundell’s position as a prominent Roman Catholic peer in an era of Anti-Catholic sentiment, arguing that his redevelopment of the family seat was, in addition, an expression of his faith and a proclamation of patriotism.

Frederick Hervey-Bathurst studied Architectural History at the Universities of Edinburgh and Virginia, graduating in 2020. The interplay of Lord Arundell’s identity and the rebuilding of Wardour was the subject of his dissertation and he has been continuing this line of research since then.

Doors open 6pm, talk starts 6.30pm (inc. wine). All welcome
