Bloomsbury’s Squares: Pioneering Past, Uncertain Future
The Study Day organised by the Association of Bloomsbury Squares and Gardens, and the Birkbeck Garden History Group is fast approaching. Event is to be held Saturday 7 May 2016
2016 is a landmark in the story of the Bloomsbury Squares, as they face serious council cuts and explore possible new ways of finance. The Study Day will trace the history of the squares, from their creation as country oases in an urban setting, through their prominent role in the early heritage conservation movement and the postwar opening of many to the public, followed by decline and then reinvigoration at the millennium, to the current situation. The day will include a number of short walks to view individual features of the squares as part of the programme.
