The next free Public Lecture Course 'The Artist and the Garden' will open for registration at 10am on 20 August.

The Artist and the Garden will take place every Thursday evening for five weeks from 27 September and will explore the multifarious ways in which the artist has impacted upon our understanding and perception of the British garden from the seventeenth century to the present day.

Through a series of related but discrete talks, speakers will explore not only the ways in which artists depicted gardens but how so many of them were active as gardeners themselves, whether they were formulating grand landscape designs or cultivating private domestic spaces. The course will feature lectures from Christopher Woodward, Director of the Garden Museum, noted academics such as Joy Sleeman and Stephen Daniels, as well as landscape architect Todd Longstaff-Gowan.
