‘Architecture-on-Sea: The buildings that made the Seaside’, Dr Kathryn Ferry Since the seaside began attracting visitors in the 18th century it has developed a range of unique building types that continue to give resorts a special sense of place. In this lecture Dr Kathryn Ferry explores the evolution of accommodation and entertainment buildings, alongside smaller structures such as promenade shelters and beach huts. Discussing the trends that defined the Victorian and inter-war eras she sets examples from the Isle of Man in the wider context of resorts competing with each other around the British coast.
Doors and bar open from 6.30pm. Talk 7-8pm.
Acclaimed naturalist and Guardian writer, Mark Cocker, will discuss his views on the future of Britain’s wildlife and invite comments from the audience. Mark will also sign copies of his new book Our place.
Environmental thought and politics have become parts of mainstream cultural life in Britain. The wish to protect wildlife is now a central goal for our society, but where did these ‘green’ ideas come from? And who created the cherished institutions, such as the National Trust or the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, that are now so embedded in public life with millions of members?
From the flatlands of Norfolk to the tundra-like expanse of the Flow Country in northern Scotland, acclaimed writer on nature Mark Cocker sets out on a personal quest through the British countryside to find the answers to these questions.
He explores in intimate detail six special places that embody the history of conservation or whose fortunes allow us to understand why our landscape looks as it does today. We meet key characters who shaped the story of the British countryside – Victorian visionaries like Octavia Hill, founder of the National Trust, as well as brilliant naturalists such as Max Nicholson or Derek Ratcliffe, who helped build the very framework for all environmental effort.
This is a book that looks to the future as well as exploring the past. It asks searching questions like who owns the land and why? And who benefits from green policies? Above all it attempts to solve a puzzle: why do the British seem to love their countryside more than almost any other nation, yet they have come to live amid one of the most denatured landscapes on Earth? Radical, provocative and original, Our Place tackles some of the central issues of our time. Yet most important of all, it tries to map out how this overcrowded island of ours could be a place fit not just for human occupants but also for its billions of wild citizens.
Thursday 28 June at the Centenary Centre, 22 Atholl Street, Peel, IM5 1BD at 7:30 PM Bar & refreshments.
