Bedford Park Society Annual Betjeman Lecture
This year's talk will be given by Clementine Cecil
Clementine Cecil, director of SAVE Britain’s Heritage, will give this year’s Bedford Park Society Betjeman Lecture in St Michael and All Angels Church, Bath Road, W4, on October 30th.
Tickets, price £7.50, will be available at the door of the church from 7.30pm onwards.
Clem will talk about her organisation’s major campaigns in Smithfield Market, Liverpool and Russia, under the title “SAVE in action – major campaigns to save the ordinary and extraordinary”.
A former Moscow correspondent for The Times, she co-founded the Moscow Architecture Preservation Society, teaching campaigning techniques in Russia. She has written and lectured on Russian architecture as well as general conservation issues.
The lectures are held by the Society every year in memory of its first patron, Sir John Betjeman, with profits going to Parkinson’s UK as Sir John suffered from this disease.
SAVE was formed in 1975 by a group of architects, journalists and planners. It is a strong, independent voice in conservation, responding rapidly to emergencies and to speak out for the historic environment.
