Illustrated Talks

Tour Guide and Researcher Lucy Brouwer is available to present illustrated talks on the Nottingham architects Watson Fothergill and Thomas Chambers Hine. I also have talks on Fothergill’s family and his buildings in Mansfield and Fothergill’s houses and their original residents in The Park Estate, Nottingham.

So far these talks have taken place in libraries at Beeston and West Bridgeford, and at Nottinghamshire County Archives as well as for local history societies in Farnsfield, Ilkeston and Mansfield. The Park Estate talk was created for The Park Estate Residents Association. Lucy has also presented talks at care homes, where the residents enjoyed sharing their memories of Nottingham buildings.

“Lucy gave an entertaining talk littered with a sprinkling of good humour about Watson Fothergill who designed so many interesting buildings in the Greater Nottingham area.”

Lucy’s talks can also take place as Zoom online meetings. If you would like to arrange a talk for your group, please contact Lucy to discuss your requirements.
