Second Thoughts from a London Chauvinist
The Gallery, 75 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EL, 20 may attend.
Tube: Farringdon (Circle, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines)

Tuesday, 5 July, 6:30 - 8:30
Peter York is a deep London Chauvinist.  Raised, educated, shaped by London – and with one long line of Londoners in his DNA – he’s always wanted London to be Top Dog amongst world cities.  Jealous of New York’s wealth and European capitals’ sophistication from the Seventies onwards, he always felt that it wasn’t enough to have invented Punk and New Romanticism.  We should have the credit and the money too. 

Hans Place: Henry Squire on Modern Craft
The Gallery, 75 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EL
Tube: Farringdon (Circle, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan lines)

Thursday, 21 July, 6:30 - 8:30
Join Henry Squire as he talks through the use of craft, ornament and innovation at Hans Place, a collection of apartments in Knightsbridge which present a modern interpretation of the intricate gauged brickwork which characterises the area and its much loved red brick buildings. 

Henry has led the design team to develop bespoke, crafted brickwork that features on spandrels, lintels and the chimney of the new development. 

LS | Jacobean Theatre
Behind the Scenes : The Globe’s Jacobean Theatre
The Globe Theatre, SE1 9DT, 25 may attend.
SOLD OUT - Members join the wait list
Tube: Southwark (Jubilee line), London Bridge (Jubilee & Northern lines), Blackfriars (Central & District lines)

Wednesday, 27 July, 6:00 - 7:30
Join Project Architect, Oliver Heywood (Allies and Morrison) as he takes us behind the scenes and explains the challenges of authentically constructing an archetypal indoor Jacobean theatre one that Shakespeare would recognise, within a shell built for this purpose in the mid 1990s.

The theatre now provides the Globe with a space to stage intimate, candlelit performances in the winter months while the much larger outdoor theatre is not in use for performances – as was always the intention of the Globe’s late founder, Sam Wanamaker.
