4th Sept: Louis de Soissons, WGC Heritage Trust

4th Sept: Louis de Soissons, WGC Heritage Trust

Date Posted: 04/09/18

WGC Heritage Trust is hosting local resident Geoffrey Hollis's talk on the man who designed WGC - ‘Keeping Up Appearances - Louis de Soissons, his life, his work, and his legacy’. He has consulted his family, trawled through archives online and in libraries, visited many of his sites, and discovered that he knows a great niece of Louis well. As a result, Geoffrey will be showing previously unseen pictures of his family and presenting new information which may lead to a complete re-evaluation of his life.

An must for anyone living in WGC with a love of architecture and design or both! An open discussion is planned after the talk so that anyone can add their knowledge or recollections of Louis de Soissons to the mix. Pictures, plans or any other relevant material is welcome.

The event is held at Focolare Centre for Unity, 69 Parkway, WGC, AL8 6JG with tickets available via 07580 197160, info@welwyngarden-heritage.org or click here for the website.
