We have an exciting series of talks across the centuries to look forward to this winter:
- Find out about the Bishops of London who, from the 7th century onwards, went on to become Archbishops of Canterbury;
- Understand the value of modern day craftsmanship, and see in action the continuity from Tudor times;
- Discover the influence of exotic Rococo tastes on 17th and 18th century England;
- And finally hear about the pioneering wife of a Bishop of London during Victorian times.
