The John Cornforth Memorial Lectures 2023

Life in historic houses

The John Cornforth Memorial Lectures tell the story of the country house and its estate, as seen through the eyes of the private owner. Proudly presented in association with Christie’s, the lecture series celebrates John Cornforth’s invaluable contribution to architectural history. This year, the proceeds of the lectures will be donated to the Historic House Foundation.

The 2023 series sees Robert Parker deliver a lecture on Browsholme Hall, Lancashire on 8 February, Lady Proby on Elton Hall, Cambridgeshire on 7 March, and James and Claire Birch on Doddington Hall, Lincolnshire on 19 April.
