Friday 07 February 2020 – The Partnership of Lutyens and Jekyll
Booking Months: Now Waiting List Only
Cost: To be advised
Location: Letcombe Regis Village Hall, OX12 9LJ
In the world of architectural and garden design, the names of Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll are inseparably linked. Lutyens owed his career to Jekyll, as she employed him when he was just starting out, introducing him to many of his early clients.
Both were inspired by the great changes stimulated by the Arts and Crafts movement and this source united them from the start. It is a story of kindliness, mutual support and artistic cross-fertilisation. Their collaborative works included Munstead Wood, Deanery Garden and Hestercombe near Taunton. They inhabited a golden age in late Victorian and Edwardian England, a world which in some respects ended for both of them with the outbreak of World War 1 in 1914.
