The Story Of York's Museum Gardens
📅 Thursday 27 June 2019
Venue: York Mansion House
What other city has, at its heart, anything to compare with York’s Museum Gardens?
The Gardens, and the Yorkshire Museum, were created nearly two centuries ago by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, with the history of the land is pieced together by the surviving remains. St Mary’s Abbey and the Multangular Tower, as well as Romans, Northumbrian Earls, Benedictine monks, Henry VIII, and the Civil War, all left their mark on the land that became the Gardens.
Join Peter Hogarth for this fascinating talk, as he explores the history of the Museum Gardens through the eyes of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, and those who have cared for the garden; drawing on their archives to show how the gardens were planned, and reveal hidden stories and personal memories.
A glass of prosecco is included with your ticket, priced at £6,
DOORS OPEN 6.15PM FOR 6.30PM START.
