A talk by Professor Tom Williamson, co-author of 'Humphry Repton in Norfolk' (signed copies will be for sale on the night).

Born in Bury St Edmunds, Humphry Repton was one of Britain’s best loved landscape designers.

His designs combine the polished look of ‘Capability’ Brown with the more naturalistic and dramatic landscapes of the Picturesque Movement. Repton was a skilled water colour painter, each commission was accompanied by one of his ingenious ‘red books’ to illustrate his proposal.
