Temporary Georgian Entertainments
Dr Melanie Doderer-Winkler, author of ‘Magnificent Entertainments - Temporary Architecture for Georgian Festivals' will bring to life the exciting but highly ephemeral world of public and private entertainments in Jane Austen's time. She explores the role of leading architects Robert Adam and William Chambers as well as members of the Royal Academy of Arts in creating fleeting moments of delight with lasting impact and popular appeal.
