Everyone has them… our near neighbour with its Little John bells, its weddings and its protest pickets and all the fun of the fair outside, or at County Hall, that green roof and the statues outside representing our – past – workforce. Symbols of democracy, civic pride, power and, often, stunning architecture.

This illustrated talk looks at the architecture and the politics of “the town hall” in this age of austerity, with examples from around the country. Diana Gillespie, who wrote about County Hall, will join the discussion.

In association with the East Midlands branch of the Twentieth Century Society.
