Four hundred and fifty years ago, our living environments changed dramatically. New house layouts met with new technologies as trade expanded across the oceans and printed books influenced detailed design in timber and plaster and glass.
This talk explores Elizabethan houses large and small, and listens to eye witnesses, to explain how we reconceived the idea of the house. Presented by Dr Jonathan Foyle, it takes place on Monday 18th February at 7.30pm at Gainsborough Old Hall.
It is open to all and tickets, costing £7.00, are obtainable from Gainsborough and District Heritage Association on North Street on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10.00am to 4.00pm and Sundays from 11.00am to 4.00pm or via 01427 612017 or firstname.lastname@example.org (not from the Old Hall!). Light refreshments are included.
