Event: The second Courts & Capitals conference organised by The Society for Court Studies and The Victorian Society.
The nineteenth century was one of the great eras of court culture and architectural patronage on a grand scale. Royal courts made huge contributions to cities and their planning but this has not received the attention it deserves. This conference highlights recent reserach and will shed new light on the influence of royal courts on the architecture and culture of some of the world’s great cities. It is intended to publish the proceedings in a special number of The Court Historian.
Date: Saturday 29 September, 2007, 10 am-5pm.
Where: The Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London W1
Cost: £45, inc. coffee, sandwich lunch and tea.
