Tickets £10. "Rosemary Hill
in conversation with Simon Jenkins.
Rosemary Hill’s biography of the Victorian architect and designer, Pugin, the central figure of the Victorian Gothic revival, reveals a complex figure who, despite his remarkable life and great achievements - Big Ben, much of the Houses of Parliament, 22 churches and 3 cathedrals - died young, disillusioned and insane. She discusses Pugin’s world-view and legacy with Simon Jenkins, former editor of The Times, columnist and author of England’s Thousand Best Churches and England’s Thousand Best Houses. Rosemary Hill is a writer and architectural historian." (christiguc)
