Duke Street Church
Susanne Groom takes us on a tour of the lost 18th century buildings and follies in Kew Gardens, considering why they may have been built and speculating on the effects they produced on those who viewed them.
Susanne lives in Kew and is a former curator at Historic Royal Palaces. She co-authored At the King’s Table: Royal Dining Through the Ages, which was the subject of her talk to us in December 2013, Discover the Gardens and Kew Palace: The Official Illustrated History. She gave a talk to us in October 2018 on the Hanoverian royal family’s 300 years at Richmond and Kew.
Susanne’s talk will be followed by our customary seasonal party, with wine, soft drinks and nibbles.
