Twickenham Luminaries: Sir John Soane at Turner’s House

18 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020
6:00 pm

In conjunction with our partners at other historic buildings in Twickenham, we have organised a series of five virtual lectures on successive evenings starting on Monday 14th September. Each lecture will shine a light on a particular individual associated with one of the buildings and will be given by an acknowledged expert.  

This talk will explore the close relationship between Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) and his friend and fellow fisherman, the architect Sir John Soane (1753–1837). It will be delivered by Ricky Pound, House Director and a Trustee of Turner’s House. More about the talk and the lecturer can be found here together  with booking information.

Lectures will start at 6 pm and last for approximately 20 minutes with time being allowed for questions and answers at the end. The event will end at or before 7 pm. They will be delivered using Zoom so you will need a computer or tablet with the Zoom program/app on it. You will be sent a link by email shortly before the lecture begins and you should follow this link at the appropriate time to join the audience. If you haven't used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download the appropriate software as soon as you try to join.
