V&A Academy Lunchtime Lecture Series: The Destruction of the Country House: 50 Years On

16th May, 2024
Online event

2024 marks the 50th Anniversary of one of the most influential exhibitions ever staged by the V&A: The Destruction of the Country House, 1875-1975. Join Dr Oliver Cox as we explore how the exhibition made the case for the country house as an endangered species; galvanised one of the largest petitions ever presented to parliament; and has shaped the way in which we think about country houses as a particularly English phenomenon ever since.
