The Plight of the Big House – JAK Dean Lecture

21st April 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£7.50 – £10.00

Lecture by JAK (Dixie) Dean following the publication of his book The Plight of the Big House in Northern Ireland  published by UAH in December 2020. Dixie is a retired architect and the author, in addition to the book which is the subject of this talk, of the acclaimed gate lodges of Ireland series for which the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain awarded him the prestigious Colvin Prize.

The big house is a truly evocative entity and the lecture will feature examples from all the six counties looking not only at those now sadly lost to us but also at the contemporary plight of those still at risk in a highly timely way.

Members £7.50, Non-Members £10.
