John Carr: Architect of the North in Georgian England

  • Location Buxton
  • Price from £15.00


Born in 1723, this year we celebrate the 300th birthday of John Carr, prolific English architect, responsible for iconic buildings such as Harewood House, Tabley House, Lytham Hall, Fairfax House and of course, our very own Crescent building.

Come and join us in the splendor of the Assembly Rooms, on the evening of Thursday 13th April, when historian, Dr Peter Collinge presents an illustrated talk on the Georgian architect and creator of Buxton Crescent and Stables. As a designer of everything from assembly rooms and asylums to country houses and prisons, Carr was the most important architect in the north of England. Let's celebrate his talent and his legacy.

Guests are invited to arrive from 6.30pm for a drink and to enjoy being in the space that Carr created. The talk will then commence at 7pm, culminating in a Q&A opportunity by 8pm.
