Queen Square: ideas, influence & importance
Dr Amy Frost
Wed 1 November 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
Queen Square was the first large-scale building development in Bath. It was here that John Wood proved that his wildly ambitious ideas could be turned into reality. With The Circus and Royal Crescent, it’s one of the most significant pieces of historic town planning in the whole of Europe. The speculative development of Queen Square is now regarded as a pivotal moment in the development of British urbanism, yet today we can’t always see the Wood for the trees.
Join Dr Amy Frost, Senior Curator at Bath Preservation Trust, for a talk exploring the ideas behind Queen Square, the influence it has had, and the need to understand its importance to the twenty-first century city.
