The Arts Society Tonbridge: study day led by Jon Cannon with a talk entitled A Thousand Years of His
This lecture uses the English cathedrals as ‘time machines’ to the medieval period, tracing their story from the revolutionary birth of English Christianity in about 600AD, through the great rebuilding that followed the Conquest of 1066, to the decades around a century later when gothic was invented in an atmosphere of febrile change and political tension.
The study day begins with coffee at 10.30am. Lunch will be taken at 1.00pm and the event ends about 3.30pm. Price: £45 to include three lectures, teas, coffees, and lunch.
