A Prince's Passion: The evolution of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton-from Farmhouse to Fantasy

Lecture | Bowdon Parish Centre

Tuesday 15 November 2011 - 14:00 until 16:00

The Pavilion was created for the Prince Regent, with the help of John Nash. Built between 1787 & 1823, it is in the Indo-Saracenic style with some of the finest examples of the Chinoiserie interiors in Britain, whilst still maintaining itself as a distinctive landmark today.

Andrew Barlow, a recent recruit to the Art Fund's Cheshire Committee, is an expert on the Pavilion. He will provide an insider’s perspective as the previous Keeper of the Brighton Pavilion and Curator of its fine art collection, if anyone knows about this extraordinary building it is he.
