Lunch Time Club Talk and Exhibition

Well the family activity events have finished for the summer. Over the 4 sessions 334 people dropped in and good times were had by all! If you want to see what we got up to have a peak at the image galleries on our website. 

But the fun isn’t over! 

As the events have been so successful we will be running 3 more before the end of the year – so keep an eye on our events pages.

We also have the Lunch Time Club talk coming up on 9th September. We will be talking about the FJ project and our progress to date in more detail, there will be illustrative slides, and Simon and I will be there to chat to after the talk. As an added incentive, to mark the occasion, we will be showing a mini exhibition of Francis Johnson & Partners material. 

A highlight will be an illustrated journal recording a Grand Tour of Europe made by Francis Johnson in 1931. The pages are full of entries recording places he visited and illustrations of architectural details and buildings he saw on his travels. The journal is in private ownership and has been kindly loaned to us for the occasion. When the project launches next August there will be a digitised copy available for research use, but this is a unique opportunity to see the original in all its beauty!

'Diary of My Journey with the Leeds Travelling Scholarship for Architecture 1931'
The exhibition will run for two weeks from the 9th September so don’t miss out. We hope to see you there!
