Following the success of our first evening lecture series, LASSCO and Historic Decoration are delighted to announce the second offering of Salon Wednesdays. After an autumnal hiatus we begin again in January; the fire will be lit and again our expert lecturers will be speaking on a broad range of topics relating to the History of Design and Architecture.
Ask questions, meet kindred spirits, enjoy our shop by candlelight, bring friends, stay for dinner in our celebrated restaurant– choose from a selection of successive talks, brought in association with our friends at Historic Decoration. We look forward to welcoming all to Brunswick House – our fabulous Georgian mansion – for what promises to be an entertaining, fun and educational evening out.
This series we welcome Dr Frances Sands, Patrick Baty, Edward Bulmer, Francis Terry, Simon Willcox, Harry Triggs & Andrew Molyneux, all leaders in their respective fields and each with a fascinating talk lined up.
Tickets are £25 for each lecture and include wine. Post-lecture sustenance can be sought at our celebrated restaurant, Brunswick House, in the Concert Hall adjacent.
