FIVE CENTURIES OF FEASTING AND DECORATION
Wednesday 4 December

£10 from 020 7401 8865
The art of the table and the garden are inextricably
intertwined. From the late medieval banquet, at which
plates could display food in the guise of a garden,
down to the forest of foliage and flower typical of the
Victorian dinner, the table has been a mirror of
changing garden style. Sir Roy Strong explores this
decorative dialogue across five centuries. This is a
joint event with the Garden History Society from which
Sir Roy recently retired as President.
