Invitation to learn about Lutyens

Published on Tuesday, November 28, 2017

THE ARCHITECT who designed Leicester’s stunning Arch of Remembrance will be celebrated in a free lecture at New Walk Museum this week.

Sir Edwin Lutyens – who also designed the Cenotaph on Whitehall and the Memorial to the Missing of the Somme at Thiepval – will be the subject of a talk by Tim Skelton, author of ‘Lutyens and the Great War’.

The lecture will focus on the memorials Lutyens designed – both at home and abroad – that continue to ensure that those who gave their lives in the service of their country are not forgotten.

‘City Series – Edwin Lutyens: Architecture of Remembrance’ takes place in the Victorian Art Gallery at New Walk Museum on Thursday 30 November from 5pm-7pm.

Tickets are free of charge but should be reserved at

The lecture is a collaboration between Story of Parks, which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and City Series.

The City Series lectures are free events that focus on urban topics such as architecture, history and geography. The series is a collaboration between Leicester City Council, De Montfort University, University of Leicester and Loughborough University.
