PAST EVENT: History Talk: Augustus Pugin

About this event

Join Rachel West for an illustrated talk about Augustus Pugin: Architect, writer, and designer of several notable Birmingham landmarks including St Mary’s Convent, Handsworth, King Edwards School, Edgbaston Park Road, and St Chad’s Cathedral.

William Morris is often credited with the founding of the ‘Arts and Crafts’ movement, however, it was Pugin’s original theories which underpinned its development, enabling Morris and others to then expand these ideas.

Tickets are £3 and can be purchased at The Circle Shop. Please purchase in advance as spaces are limited (cash only).
