Spring Lecture 2018 – Celebrating Humphry Repton

This year we are celebrating the life of Humphry Repton, the last great English landscape designer of the eighteenth century and the successor to Capability Brown. Repton died 200 years ago on the 24th March, 1818.
Ben Viljoen will be talking about the events surrounding Repton’s visit to Purley, the time he spent here with Anthony Morris Storer who had just acquired Purley Park, and the production of the Purley Red Book, one of the finest of Repton’s red books.

Come and join us for light refreshments in the Purley Barn RG8 8DR at 7.30pm on Thursday 22nd March followed by Ben’s illustrated talk. The cost of the lecture is £10.00 per person for BGT members; £12.00 per person for non-members; and £20.00 for a member or non-member with a guest.
