Humphry Repton and the Picturesque is the title of the second memorial lecture on the celebrated landscape gardener of later Georgian England who is buried in the churchyard of Aylsham Parish Church where he and his family worshipped.

Tom Williamson, Professor of Landscape History at the University of East anglia, will give the talk in the parish church on Friday May 10th at 7.30pm.

It follows a hugely successful inaugural lecture last year, part of the Repton200 Festival, making the bicentenary o Repton;s death, in 1818.

Pro Williamson, who has published several books on 18th century landscape gardening, hosted a workshop in Aylsham last year about Repton's work as a landscape designer and entrepreneur.

It is hoped that Repton lectures will become an annual event, helping to keep his legacy fresh, to share current ideas about his contribution, and to focus on landscape and gardening history more generally.

Entry to the lecture is free (donations welcome). Wine and refreshments be served before and afterwards.
