A glass of wine from 6.15 pm

John Inglis and Jill Sanders are the indefatigable brains behind a remarkable current project to present a travelling photographic panorama of 52 miles of Thames riverbanks as a direct comparison with the historic Leigh Panorama, the 60 ft extravaganza of 1829 which they have meanwhile already restored.   As well as being an impressive technical accomplishment (John Inglis is a former special effects designer), the project gives a dramatic onscreen demonstration of how much, and how little, London has change over the past two centuries. At this special Georgian Group event John and Jill will introduce their current film of the project, and will bring and sign copies of their recent book ‘Panorama of the Thames: A Riverside View of Georgian London’.
