Walking Tour

Wednesday 19 July



Crescent vs Crescent – Walking tour with Dr Amy Frost from the Royal Crescent to Lansdown Crescent, via (Camden Crescent and Cavendish Crescent), exploring the influence the Royal Crescent had on the others that followed, what makes it superior (or inferior in Beckford’s eyes) and how Bath and its architectural heritage and social history changed during the period between the two buildings being constructed.

The Beckford Book Group

Join us at the Tower for our quarterly book group exploring writings (loosely) related to the work of William Beckford.  You don’t need to have read the book, just be interested in enjoying an evening of talks from experts, interesting discussions, tea, coffee (maybe wine).

In the spirit of the Herschel Museum’s Jubilate exhibition and in reference to Richard Sheridan’s elopement with Elizabeth Linley from the Royal Crescent in Bath we will be reading The Rivals by Richard Sheridan.  It will be the book group’s first play, and hopefully an evening of book group amateur theatrics as we read through scenes.
