Event description

In this illustrated talk head of landscape Joe Hawkins will reveal his journey of discovery during the ongoing restoration of this once celebrated Georgian landscape which had lain neglected for a century and a half. Hagley Park’s main period of development occurred from 1747 and in its heyday drew visitors from around the world. This ambitious restoration will return it to its 18th Century glory. The park has now been designated a Grade I registered park of exceptional national importance and Joe is currently writing up his PhD thesis on the park.

Ticket includes a glass of wine/soft drink and nibbles.
Please Note: In order to further understand the wonderful landscape at Hagley Park we have also organised a visit on Wednesday 29th April 2020. Joe will lead the tour followed by a cream tea at Hagley Hall. Please note numbers are limited to 20 places for this tour. You can purcahse your ticket via the Gardens Trust events page.
