Event Details

£15 (£10 YGs)

Join arguably Britain’s leading architectural historian Dr John Martin Robinson for an evening conversation to learn more about his fascinating and multifarious career. Attendees will learn more about an author of almost thirty internationally regarded books, countless articles for magazines and journals, the librarian to the Duke of Norfolk, Maltravers Herald Extraordinary at The College of Arms, and advisor to some of the most important architectural conservation and restoration projects seen in this country during the last century. His biographic masterpiece ‘The Wyatts’ deriving from his thesis at Oxford has ensured his legacy as the leading authority on one of Regency Britain’s most successful architectural dynasties. Guests are to prepare themselves for an evening of enthralling anecdotes, swoon worthy interiors and our speaker’s famously indomitable wit.

Dr. Martin Robinson has been a life-long supporter and former trustee and vice-chairman of the Georgian Group and divides his time between his Georgian country house in Lancashire, a Regency mews house in London and, through his work, the country houses of both Britain and abroad. Guests are invited to join the conversation (hosted by Harrison Goldman, YG Committee), asking Dr. Martin Robinson questions. Copies of his latest book, ‘Holland Blind Twilight’ (Mount Orleans Press, 2021), the second part of his memoirs, will also be available to purchase.

The talks starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
