James Paine and Doncaster Mansion House
Talk and Tour | Doncaster Mansion House
Friday 1 December 2017 - 10:15 until 12:30
James Paine (1717 - 1789) is widely regarded as one of the great architects of the Palladian Revival.
Doncaster's Mansion House was Paine's first major project; launching his architectural career. He had already worked on Nostell Priory, Kedlelston Hall and the stables at Chatsworth. He built New Wardour Castle in Wiltshire (which featured in Billy Elliot).
To celebrate the tercentenary of Paine's birth, Jackie Gladden from the Friends of The Mansion House will give a talk about Paine, followed by a tour of The Mansion House.
Although the entrance to the building has a number of steps, there is an alternative entrance for those with access needs and an internal lift to the first floor rooms. A hearing loop is available and should be requested when booking.
This event has been organised by the South Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
