An invitation to the BSC meeting: ''E.W Goodwin: The Greatest Aesthete Of Them All' on Tuesday 20th September at 7.30pm.
Admission is £6 for non-members and free for members (although a voluntary contribution of £2 is suggested). Our guest speaker will be Mary Wright, local historian with a particular interest in the inner city areas of Bristol. Her published work includes pamphlets for the Historical Society, a history of Montpelier and co-authored, a history of Kingsdown. Her interest in the life and work of Edward Godwin arose from her concern about the neglect and subsequent deterioration of his architecturally distinguished Carriage-works in Stokes Croft.
The theme of the evening's discussion will be ''E.W Goodwin: The Greatest Aesthete Of Them All'. Edward Godwin was one of Bristol's most eminent Victorians : archaeologist, architect, designer of highly original furniture and creator of theatre sets and costumes. He was influential in the Aesthetic Movement that created the "look" of Victorian England. He was passionate about Bristol and its architectural legacy,setting up the city's first Conservation Society.

The event will take place at Redland Park United Reformed Church, 9 Redland Park, BS6 6SA.
