Following the popularity of their autumn 2021 lecture, the Bedford Park Society has commissioned Nicholas Friend MA FRSA, to provide further insights into Bedford Park in two additional presentations for the Society. The first takes place on Wednesday 26 January and details of the next, planned for March, will be released shortly.
Bedford Park, founded in 1875, is often seen as the world’s first garden suburb but it had precedents in estate, mill and retirement villages of the 18th and earlier 19th centuries. Nicholas will outline the distinctive differences between those villages and Bedford Park’s planning, ideas and ideals, and the influence Bedford Park’s new thinking had on similar developments in Britain, Germany and the United States.
Nicholas was Founder-Director of the Cambridge University Art History Summer School for 25 years. Since 1986 he has also been Founder-Director of Inscape, the art history study tour society, which has taken its members into the active study of buildings and art galleries all over the world.
