Bath, the Story of a City

Talk
, 2:00pm – 3:15pm
Hastings Centre, Hastings

Bath is famous as England’s most beautiful Georgian city, a vision of sweeping crescents and neat squares in golden stone, framed by wooded hills. However, Bath was a medieval and ancient city, too. This talk will include Bath’s origins. How did Bath burst out of the old walls to develop into its elegant final form? Which ideas fell by the wayside and what do the major individual buildings have to tell us when we look at them closely? Come and find out more!

Our speaker is Dr Jonathan Foyle who has gained over a 25-year practical career in the world of historic buildings and applied arts to inform architectural conservation projects, broadcasts, books, articles, and talks for groups including the Arts Society. He is a former Curator at Hampton Court, and Chief Executive of World Monuments Fund Britain. He has authored seven volumes on great cathedrals and castles. He is perhaps best known for presenting some television programmes, for example Channel 5’s Secrets of the Palaces.
