Gwrych Castle is a place of the imagination. From its very inception it epitomised a period scholarly medievalism in Britain, a time of political expression and romanticism through architecture and landscape. It still fires our imagination today, even in an unrestored state. 

Chambers Conservation have unparalleled experience of working on complex significant historic sites, securing, and delivering successful National Lottery Heritage Fund projects and supporting third-sector clients along what is, potentially, a long but rewarding journey.

During this lecture, Rob Chambers will be unveiling the vision for Gwrych Castle's Castle Core project, and will discuss his plan on achieving this.

The monument and landscape of Gwrych Castle still can't fail to impress today, but look even further back in time and the landscape surrounding Gwrych has been home to a number of equally impressive monuments and activity over thousands of years.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King! Majesty and Mourning in Edwardian Britain
 
When King Edward VII - glamorous, cosmopolitan and extraordinarily popular - died in May 1910, the political, social and cultural anxieties of a nation in turmoil were temporarily set aside during a summer of intense and ritualised mourning. Against a backdrop of bereavement and Parliamentary crisis overshadowed by the gathering clouds of war, a people caught between past and future, tradition and modernity, united to bid farewell to a much-loved monarch who had personified his age. 
 
Join Martin Williams, author of The King is Dead, Long Live the King!, as he explores a fascinating and, with hindsight, liminal moment in Britain's twentieth-century history.
