The Cathedral Builders

Keith is a retired architect from Wolverhampton with an almost lifelong interest in architectural history.  His talk will highlight the origins of cathedrals, built to the glory of God but influenced by an army of human egos too.  Cathedral builders were supreme masters of their craft and the talk will look at the building methods they used and, in the process, examine some of the severe structural problems they experienced and how they overcame them.

The Mayflower Children

Phil describes himself as a mill town Lancastrian who has relocated to Shropshire. He has had a varied career as a teacher and as a journalist for national newspapers as well as running a national education charity.  He now earns his living as an author.  Among his books are 'The Mayflower Children”, a history of the events surrounding the More children and  “A Spurious Brood” a fictionalised account of the story, published in 2011 to favourable reviews.
Phil’s talk is the true story of Katherine More, youngest daughter of an ancient Shropshire family, whose four children were transported to America on board the Pilgrim Fathers’ ship the Mayflower.

A Career in Antiques

Philip worked for the London based Auction Houses, Philips and Christie’s for over 30 years ending his career as a director, head of department and auctioneer for Christies.  Starting as a trainee with Philips he soon found his passion in “antique” furniture and his experience has given him the opportunity to develop his understanding of furniture and its values.  He has travelled widely in Europe and has contributed to many art magazines and books and has been a lecturer, tutor and mentor to trainees in the field.  Philip’s talk will show a personal journey which demonstrates the training, daily routines and workings within the world of auction houses.
