An Evening of Architectural Follies – Illustrated Talk by Jonathan Holt

Date: September 19, 2019

Time: 8pm

Location: Beaufort Bookshop, 1 Beaufort Place, St Saviour’s Road, Larkhall, Bath BA1 6RP

A Folly Fellowship Event

Grottoes, shell houses, towers, gazebos, belvederes, sham castles, sham churches, eyecatchers, the list of building types goes on, all to enjoy and marvel at. From his vast photographic collection he will show how weird and wonderful follies can be, their high artistic value and beautiful decoration, backed up by the amazing stories behind them.
Jonathan has scoured the world for follies for decades, and has written four books on Somerset, Gloucestershire, Dorset and recently Wiltshire. He is also Editor of Follies, the organ of the Folly Fellowship, a charity dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of these curious buildings. All his books will be on sale and there will be some folly freebies for all who attend this intriguing evening.
