Our VISTA guest this July is George McKay, Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Salford, author and contributor to BBC Radio, the Guardian, the Independent, the New Statesman and the Times Higher Education. Professor McKay has just released the thought provoking Radical Gardening: Politics, Idealism and Rebellion in the Garden.
Radical Gardening uncovers and celebrates moments, movements, gestures, of a people’s approach to gardens and gardening. It weaves together garden history with the counterculture, stories of individual plants with discussion of government policy, and the social history of campaign groups with the pleasure and dirt of hands in the earth. George will discuss his refreshing take on a familiar subject with Tim [Richardson] and Noel [Kingsbury].
A 2 course dinner will be served following the talk. Tickets £20 each, please book well in advance as places are limited.
Tickets £10 / £5 Museum Friends. Dinner £20’
