The Arts Society Tonbridge Talk: What Have the Huguenots Ever Done For Us? Mass Migration and the Ar

The mass migration of the French Protestant Huguenots in the 16th and 17th centuries impacted the arts, the military and finance sectors of the countries to which they fled. This lecture focuses on three areas of the arts impacted by the migration: the baroque style of Versailles that arrived in London; the growth of the silk weaving industry; and on the silversmiths and ceramicists who ushered the French Rococo style into Britain.
The lecture begins at 2.30pm. All welcome. Suggested donation for visitors £6.
